Evening, The notes say for calculating child benefits received : “This is the amount of Child Benefit for a full week, where a Monday falls within the tax year. For the 2021 to 2022 tax year, the first week starts on Monday 12 April 2021 and the last week starts on Monday 4 April 2022. There are 52 Mondays in the 2021 to 2022 tax year. If you got payments for the full year, put the total for 52 weeks in box 1.” I receive my child benefit payments into my bank always on Tuesdays. 1. So for example, I received £21.05 on 06/04/2021 ( a Tuesday) I’m assuming that as that week’s Monday (05/04/2021) was in 20-21 tax year. I don’t count this any of this £21.05 for 21-22 tax year. 2. Instead I start counting from the £21.15 received on 13/04/21 (Tuesday) as the Monday 12/04/2021 is in 21-22 tax year. 3. Similarly on 05/04/22 (a Tuesday) I received £21.15, as Monday (04/4/2022) is within 21-22 tax year, I will count this entire £21.15 as part of the 21-22 tax year. Are these correct? Thank you, have nice evening.

Child benefit is paid either on a Monday or Tuesday. 

Although you receive your payment on a Tuesday, for the purposes of calculating the child benefit, you should use
Monday to work out how much you have recieved in the tax year. 

This means the payment for Monday 5 April (paid to you on Tues 6 April) falls in 20/21 tax year. 

The payment on Monday 4 April (paid to you on Tuesday 5 April) falls within 21/22 tax year. 

There is a calculator at :

Thank you.

Thank you, So for Mondays that fall within the tax year, I add the entire week’s amount to that tax year, right? For example, This means the payment for Monday 5 April (paid to you on Tues 6 April) falls in 20/21 tax year. —> this entire week’s payment would be counted in 20/21 tax year

That is correct.

Thank you.
