440,000 tax credit claimants still to renew their claims

HMRC is reminding tax credit claimants that they have until 31 July 2021 to renew their claims.

According to HMRC, 440,000 claimants have yet to renew their claims. More than 2.5 million annual tax credits packs were posted to claimants between late April and early July 2021.

Claimants will have either received an 'auto-renewal' reminder or a 'reply required' notice. All 'reply required' claimants must renew their claims or contact HMRC to notify them of any change in circumstances ahead of the deadline to continue receiving tax credits payments.

Myrtle Lloyd, HMRC's Director General for Customer Services, said:

'We know how important tax credits are to our customers, so we've made it quicker and easier to renew claims online. There's no need to wait for the 31 July deadline – do it now by searching 'tax credits' on GOV.UK.'
