    Tax credit question 19th May 17 at 10:57 AM
    Currently me and my OH work pt each and are eligible for tax credits

    I am due to start a new job on July 1st which is full time and on £26000 per year

    I am right in saying that for the renewal I have been sent I say no changes as was for the previous year

    Then when I start the new job do I notify at the end of the financial year or when I start the job?

    You should report the new estimate for 2017/18 asap.

    You can then call and confirm the new work details when you start.

    The won't be able to update the employer until it starts but you can update yor income at anytime because it's the income for the full tax year you give.

    also, due to tax credits working in full tax years, it may be worth putting aside the tax credits received from April as, depending on your circumstances you may not qualify in the current tax year so may have to pay all or some back
