What is Child Tax Credit?
Child Tax Credit is a benefit available in the UK to help with the cost of raising a child. It is a tax credit which can be offered on top of child benefit and can be paid to families whether they are in or out of work. The credit is integrated with working tax credit, which also provides assistance for childcare costs. You may be eligible to receive a Child Tax Credit for each child you are responsible for if they either are under 16, or under 20 and in approved education or training.
