Tax Credits: Policy

In this section you will find links to tax credits research and reports as well as links to tax credits statistics published by HMRC and others.

We have provided links to both past and current  tax credits consultations. We will add any new consultations to the blog as they are published.

Tax credits have undergone some fairly major changes in the last couple of years. The policy changes section outlines changes to the system that have happened since 2003 as well as details of future policy changes not yet implemented. Universal Credit will eventually replace tax credits. You can find out more about the move to UC in our transition to universal credit section.

There are various Parliamentary committees that cover tax credits, we provide information about these committees and their work as well as information about the Social Security Advisory Committee. Calls for evidence and reports published by the committees will be published in our news section.
