If you wish to claim Child Tax Credit on your child, then just dial 0345 300 3900 on your phone to contact the HMRC.
Those who have children are always in constant need of money to pay for expenses that are related to child raising. That’s why the Child Tax Credit is such an important supplement to your income.
When you receive your pay cheque it’s already divvied up between household and child rearing-related obligations. There are so many things you need to take care of if you decide to bring a child into this world with your significant other.
You’ll need to feed them, clothe them, educate them and look after them. When they grow up they will soon feel that they are entitled to everything you have – that may be so, but it still doesn’t take away from the fact that having a child is a financial burden. This is why the government has so wisely set up a Child Tax Credit for those who have children.
Phone Numbers for Child Tax Credit
The Child Tax Credit acts like a welfare benefit for parents. When you have children who are younger than 16 (or 20 if they’re enrolled in school or other training facilities that are approved by the HMRC), then you’re eligible. Just call their offices up by dialling 0345 300 3900 on the phone or 0345 300 3909 on the textphone. You can even call the child tax credits team from outside the UK by calling their international helpline +44 2890 538 192.
Manage your Child Tax Credits Online

You can also have a live web chat with one of their advisors at www.gov.uk/government/organisations/hm-revenue-customs/contact/tax-credits-enquiries.
