11CTC claim form - Claim Tax Credits for year 2002-2003

11CTC claim form - Claim Tax Credits for year 2002-2003

I work for HMRC under the Tax Credits section and was going to post this up. It has already been posted up under the misc section:

hotukdeals.com/ite…00/
hotukdeals.com/ite…re/

but i thought more people would maybe see it under the freebie section as with the pregnancy one found

hotukdeals.com/ite…ri/

So apologies for the repost but with the deadline being the 31st Jan i just wanted to make sure everyone was aware.

The TCO (Tax credit office) is now accepting backdated claims for 2003-2003 for anyone that hada child that was 16 in the year of 2002-2003. The basic guidelines for CTC is that the household inc is below 58k per year. So if your income is below that and you had a child under the age of 16 you should be able to claim it back. The basic entitlement is 547.50 per year. so you will get this in a backdated amount.

All you need to do is fill out the form and return it.

Any questions or help needed just ask. As i say sorry for the repost i just want to make sure no one misses it (As i know im bad for only checkign the deals sections)

Thanks for the reminder. Not everyone would have seen the original post. I sent mine off on 3rd nov but still waiting for reply, probably have a backlog of claims.

I'm sure we had Child tax credits for our children

I was under 16 then, although my parents now live in Finland and New Zealand so not sure if they can claim for me :-s Thanks for the info, haven't seen it before.

yes, I sent my claim off at beginning of Dec. & I still haven't heard anything

have to use a printer, we cant issue by phone

Thanks, heat & rep added for the useful info. Shame my first wasn't born until 2004 but I know a few people who have applied for this.

Can I ask H04X for a bit of help. I have just dug out coding notices for 01/02. Do you know what the maximum earning limit was then for getting the childrens tax credits?

On the allowances side it gave me 5200 but on the take away side it deducted 2830.

On the SA form for that year I did, it was the first one ever, there is no mention on the allowance section for this children's credit, as result I had to pay back over £800.

I am wondering now if I perhaps in my tax ignorance at the time I missed it off, or if I perhaps earn t too much at the time?

taxable income for 01/02 was £38k

Many thanks

Hi wantthatone,

Im not entirely sure how SA works as i only deal with Tax Credits but for the purposes of tax creadits we need to know about the taxable inc you withdrew from the business, so if your taxable inc for that year was the 38k that is all u need to put down, also any interest in savings etc greater than £300 for the year are supposed to be declared, from about 20k-56k recieve what is known as the basic child element which everyone is entitled to. i only work weekends with being at uni so i can check on sat what the highest limit was for that year. but if you were around the 38k then you will deffinetly be within the income bandings so i would advise you fill it out and send it back.

I cant stress enough however ensure its sent recorded delivery so it cant be 'lost' etc.

for those without a printer, perhaps you local community centre or advice centre, even politicians offices would normally oblige. our local community centre does these things for a few pence like photocopying. may be useful for some who would otherwise be stuck. good luck to you all.

How do you know if you have already received tax credits for these years?

Would it be an offence to re-claim?

Great post h04x. Thanks.

I sent my form off two weeks ago. Does anyone know how long it takes to get a reply?

Where do I send the form?

Do dividends count as income?

I called my local tax office last month when I found out about this and was advised that if you had a tax code ending either H or T (I think!) and you were the higher earner, then you have likely received this payment.

Why not call your local tax office with your details to find out, they CAN tell wether you've had this or not within 10 mins (Including the 8 mins on hold!)

Most people have not recieved this as Tax Credits did not start till 2003. You would simply apply and if you were not eligibile they would politely tell you you are getting nothing :whistling: so no harm in filling it out

I wouldnt be expecting anything soon. The Tax Credit Office take along time to deal with anything if its not run of the mill work but aslong as its submitted on time then you have nothing to worry about

Income that needs to be included is any taxble income so if your dividends were taxable then we would include them. However the first £300 of other income is tax free for the purposes of Tax credits so you reduce that.

e.g. if you recieved £500 of taxable dividends you would simply declare £200.

There is no harm in asking. Its what they are there for. We have not been advised of this information regarding tax codes indicating if they have all ready recieved this. We simply had an update in our guidance informing us that should anyone wish to claim for those years to direct them to our website where they can print the form and apply.

If anyone is really struggling for a printer im more than happy to print it out and post to them. Wouldnt like to see anyone loose out.

oh and Merry Christmas everyone :santa:

Hi

I was 16 in Aug 2003, does that mean my mum can claim for me even though I am now 21 and no longer living at home??

Seems to good to be true!! LOL.

Also just read elsewhere that you need to have worked, paid tax and earned over £6000 ... now my mum and dad seperated (not divorced so still techincally married) this year so as a "couple" they earned more than the £6000 and paid tax, so would this need to be a joint claim although they are now divorced? Otherwise would my mother not be able to claim as she is now single and technically did not earn £6000 and pay the tax as she was a housewife? Thanks.

Hi which address do i send this form to, because on this site taxcredits.org.uk/COH…pdf
it says to send the form to,

The Entitlements Agency
Chapel House
Chapel Street
Congleton
Cheshire
CW12 4AB

Thanx

Hi many thanks for the info, would it be possible to print me out a form as i have no working printer, my address is . Apoligies if iv done this wrong but this is my first post and i havent a clue how to do it.

Many thanks again

All you need to do is to telephone your local tax office and they will tell you immediately if you have claimed this or not, you need to have your NI no. handy when you call. If you are divorced, as in my case since 2003, and you are not the higher earner in the relationship, you are only able to apply for half of the claim, your other half has to apply to get the other half of the claim themselves, it does not automatically get sent to them. If you are the higher earner you can claim all the credit.

When I phoned my local tax office, they sent me a form to claim on which I received before xmas and returned.

Hi so could someone confirm which address i need to send this form 2 please thanks.

thanks for the info - will get the forms sent off.

nice one...H/R added

I'm feeling for h04x right now..... I used to work for HMRC years ago and I'm certainly not regretting not having these questions thrown at me - you're a brave soul!
Anyone having problems with the CTC or SA form just check out the HMRC site, there are various helplines set up and will list your local office if there is a need to visit them in person. I wouldn't expect responses to the forms to be that quick though - look at the royal mess that was made last time when this system was introduced!

i had 5 kids under 16 in 2002-2003-
can i apply for all of them?

hi if you have already been getting the child tax credit since it started do u still need to fill in the form would they not automaticly give it you . is this a lump sum or spread over the 52 wks cheers xxx:thumbsup:

I don't get this at all! My kids were under 16 in 02/03 but I have always claimed tax credits (I think) - does this mean I missed a year? I have one child under 16 now and I get a small amount a month for him.

Should I ring Preston helpline to ask, I had that much bother with them over the years it was untrue.

give op a break, just go to local community advice centre, local business centre, cab, or internet cafe and they can all help you print off a copy cheaply, or a relative that works in an office. thats what i did at the start until i got a pc.

i have always had to reapply annually, and its quite tough to get it all right within the renewal time. send plenty of reminders to me, but i can renew by phone or online now that my claim in already up to date in the system.

be aware that the deadline is like all hmrc things set in stone, so be in early. your loss is their gain. dont forget to have it registered as well and keep a copy
