A new advertising campaign launched this week is reminding customers to renew their tax credits on time, as this is too important to forget.

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.

Angela MacDonald, Director General for Customer Services at HMRC, said, “We know that our customers lead busy lives, which is why our online services are available day and night.



She added, “Customers can complete their tax credit renewals at a time convenient to them. Renewing on time is vital to ensure that their payments don’t stop.”

Claimants can get help and information on renewing tax credits:

  • On GOV.UK at;
  • By tweeting @HMRCcustomers or posting on our Facebook page with general queries;
  • Using HMRC’s App, which is available on the App Store or Google Play Store;
  • Using the online forum (click on Tax Credits and You);
  • Through HMRC’s webchat help service; or
  • By calling the tax credits helpline: 0345 300 3900
