With just seven days to go until the 31 July renewal deadline, HMRC is reminding customers that they must renew their tax credits by 31 July 2019 or face losing their payments.

Renewing online is quick and easy. Customers can log into GOV.UK to check on the progress of their renewal, be reassured it’s being processed and know when they’ll hear back from HMRC. Customers can also use the HMRC App on their smartphone to:

  • renew their tax credits;
  • check their tax credits payments schedule; and
  • find out how much they have earned for the year.

Further assistance can be found by calling the tax credits helpline on 0345 300 3900

Angela MacDonald, Director General for Customer Services at HMRC, said: “The 31 July deadline is fast approaching and renewing your tax credits is something too important to forget. HMRC support is available at all times of the day and night via GOV.UK and the smartphone app to help customers get their renewals right.

“It’s fantastic that so many customers have already renewed their tax credits. I urge those who are yet to renew to do so as soon as possible, in order to avoid having their payments stopped.”
