Reply To: arrears of tax credits


The payment of £80 is the first regular instalment of the award. Therefore the arrears figure would be £456.

I have contacted the IR on numerous occassions with examples like this and finally spoke to someone who seemed to know exactly what info I wanted. She informed me that with weekly payers when a payment of arrears is made, the first normal weekly instalment is normally paid in the same week that the arrears are paid.

Hope this helps.
