    hi, i applied for tax credits end of July & received a letter 7 days ago saying an award had been made & would follow in a separate letter. How long do you think it will take to come now?

    thanks

    The usual time suggested between them receiving the claim and paying out if the claim passed was 5 weeks.

    But there is nothing statutory in that. Keep ringing them but make sure you have anytime calls otherwise you'll run up a small fortune hanging on.
