Tax Credits Consultation Group (formerly Benefits and Credits Consultation Group)

The Tax Credits Consultation Group (TCCG) is a closed  forum hosted by HMRC to discuss primarily tax credits but also some aspects of child benefit, guardian’s allowance and tax-free childcare where relevant.

The TCCG was set up to replace the former stakeholder group, known as the Benefits and Credits Consultation Group (BCCG).

Since 2014, BCCG face to face meetings were replaced by a closed email circulation group. During 2019, HMRC closed the BCCG group.

The group used to meet bi-monthly and the minutes were published after each meeting on the HMRC website. We have provided links to them below.
