HMRC reminds parents to update their children's details as exam results revealed

AS GCSE exam results are released in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is reminding parents in the North West who receive 'Child Benefit' and 'Child Tax Credits' to inform them of their child's educational status ahead of 31 August  2017, otherwise payments will stop. Parents can use their Personal Tax Account (PTA) to update both their 'Child Benefit' and 'Child Tax Credit' information online in a matter of minutes; it's quick and easy, and more than 12 million customers have registered for the PTA so far.  Parents must let HMRC know if any of their children are aged 16+ and continuing in full time education or are undertaking an apprenticeship. Alternatively, if a young person leaves education or training; for example to start full time work or because their course has ended; claimants must report this change straight away to prevent the build-up of overpayments which they will have to pay back.

Angela MacDonald, Director General of Customer Services, said:- "Congratulations to all students getting their results today. Once parents or guardians know what their child has decided to do it's really important they let us know as soon as possible, so they continue to get the right benefits and credits.  This can be done quickly and simply using the Personal Tax Account, which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That means that parents can let us know their child's education status, at a time that suits them ahead of the 31 August 2017 deadline."
