07 Apr Payroll – What happens when a child turns 16?
Do you employ under 16’s for part-time or weekend work?
Child Benefit – what happens when they turn 16?
Child benefit and child tax credit claimants have until 31st August to let HMRC know if a child will continue in full time education or training – otherwise payments will stop. Have you or your staff missed this deadline? Find out what to do now by contacting us.
Is it your responsibility to tell your staff about the education until 18 procedures? Probably not, but its good for staff morale if you are on their side and aware of the changes they may face when their child reaches 16 or if any of your part-time or weekend staff are 14 – 16 year olds, it’s a nice touch to be able to direct them and their parents in the right direction regarding child related benefits and Tax credits.
With regard to child benefit and tax credits – HMRC have to be informed when a child turns 16, 18 and 19 that they are in approved training or working.
