Tax Credits: Benefits and Credits Consultation Group

BCCG was a forum hosted by HMRC to discuss tax credits, child benefit, guardian’s allowance and tax-free childcare with representatives.

The format and objectives of the group were reviewed during 2014 and members consulted on proposals to streamline the arrangements. Before then the Group provided:

During 2014, BCCG agreed to reduce the number and frequency of their meetings to cover  various specific sub-committee arrangements to discuss items of specific interest, such as the in-year finalisation of tax credits.

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.
