    I usually work a 30 hour week, but one of the days this week due to circumstances beyond my control I was 15 minutes late for work and lost 15 minutes pay.

    Because I only worked 29.75 hours this week do I need to inform HMRC with regard to tax credits or will they turn a blind eye to this if it's only a one off?

    No you will be ok. An hour change has to be for 4 weeks or more before you have to report it.
    I only comment on posts I have relevant understanding and knowledge of, I have worked as a Payroll Clerk for 19 Years first in Recruitment now in the Voluntary Sector. Had all sorts of battles over the Years with Housing Benefits, Tax Credits and got over £2000 compensation from CSA when they got it wrong for 2 Years Now CIPP qualified!
