My daughter was born in February and the child benefit application was successful with start date of 27th February 2023 (that's the date from which payments are calculated). However, I received the first child benefit payment on 6th April 2023 (that's the day it was paid into my bank account for the first time). According to this, have I received Child Benefit in the tax year 2022-23? I'm now completing my self assessment tax return and I'm not sure whether I should indicate that I have received child benefit in the tax year 2022-23 or should do this for the next tax return 2023-24. Thank you.

You would declare this as 2022/23.
Thank you.
