    We had this alert sent out at work. To add a bit of info that a colleague established, you can only claim for one child no matter how many you had of the correct age at the time (I think it's £520) and I did hear that the administration charge is around £94 (but I can't confirm if this is correct for sure). I think that the HMRC website has full details here...

    Just found the link for the claim form...

    Hope this helps.

      I've got one of those! but I was paying 40% tax at the time - those were the days...so not sure there would be anything in it for me, although a rebate would come in real handy about now!
      Thanks Goldy1 I will check it out!

          Beware- if any sites are charging a fee- don't use them- you can claim it free of charge through your relevant pay services with your employer.

            I heard about this just before Christmas and thought I'd get an early pressie from the tax man!

            Phone your local tax office with your National Insurance number - they will be able to do a quick check of your tax code for that year and tell you if you have already claimed this credit. Alas, I already had, as I'd claimed it in the year in question. However, if you haven't claimed it you fill out a form and send it off (I've seen the form, not too complicated!) Please don't pay anyone to do it for you, line your own pockets not theirs!

            In the first instance, give the tax office a call, they are suprisingly helpful!

                The tax credit is from a few years ago (02/03 I think) when this credit was not means tested i.e. anyone was entitled to it, regardless of how much or how little you or your OH was earning. It's different now, the working family tax credit is means tested - if the household income is below £58k you are entitled to some credits, if its above £58k you get nothing.

                My advice, for what its worth, is that if you have a child born between 6 April 1986 and 5 April 2003 you phone your local tax office (you'll need your NI number (and maybe your OH's)) to see if you can claim. If not you've wasted a few minutes of your time, if you can claim then you can look forward to a nice fat cheque!
