Good afternoon, When entering the child benefits section on self assessment, where it asks for how many child you received it for. What should I put if I used to have 2 children receiving it, but last year in july, they turned 18 and stopped receiving it, so I had only 1 child receiving it for the rest of the year. Would I still put 2 children or just 1?:

Hi,

When completing the Child Benefit section, there will be a question that asks if you received Child Benefit for the whole tax year for every child, you would answer no to this question. It will then ask how many children you received part year for.

Thank you.

Hello, After I complete the section for how many children I received part year for, will this show up in the final completed return as well or will I only see the number of children that I received for the whole year.

Hi,


It will show the total number of children you received any child benefit for during the year.

Thank you.
