This is a new service – your feedback will help us to improve it.

Here's a few reasons why it's quicker and easier to renew online:
  • Renewing online is quick and easy and you can do it any time of the day or night.
  • You can do it on a computer, tablet, phone or using the HMRC app.
  • Renewing online allows you to go back to any screen at any time, for example if you’ve missed off some information or you need to report a change of circumstance.

Renewing online also means you can:

  • View a helpful summary at the end of the online submission clearly showing details of your tax credits renewal before you finally submit.
  • Request an email confirmation to let you know that the renewal has been received, and also go online later to check how we’re doing with your renewal and when you’ll hear back from us.
  • Track your renewal’s progress online 24/7, from being processed to finalised.
  • Receive an instant text message once your renewal is submitted, with the wording 'Thank you for submitting your Tax Credit renewal. We will send you an SMS update within 5 days.'

You can renew your tax credits online through your Personal tax account here.
