star this property answer text <p>The Government introduced the High Income Child Benefit Charge (HICBC) from January 2013 to ensure that support is targeted at those who need it most. It applies to anyone with an individual income over £50,000, who claims Child Benefit or whose partner claims it. The charge increases gradually for taxpayers with incomes between £50,000 and £60,000.</p><p> </p>If total household income was taken into account, information on the incomes of everyone in each of the eight million households receiving Child Benefit would need to be collected and would effectively introduce a new means test.

star this property answer text <p>High Income Child Benefit Charge (HICBC) is part of the Self-Assessment (SA) process and is reflected in each individual’s overall SA tax charge. This HICBC charge is included in the individual’s annual SA tax return and, where HICBC is recoverable, will form part of the overall tax due by that person. It is therefore not possible to distinguish HICBC charges from other SA charges that may be included for that tax year. For SA overall, 8% of people did not pay by the due date, meaning the vast majority (92%) paid on time.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Child Benefit is payable where a claimant is responsible for a child under the age of 16, or a qualifying young person up to the age of 20 in full-time non-advanced education or approved training. A person is treated as being responsible for a child in any week where:</p><p>(i) they have the child living with them in that week; or</p><p>(ii) they are contributing to the upkeep of the child at a weekly rate not less than the amount of Child Benefit payable for that week.</p><p> </p><p>Only one person can get Child Benefit in respect of a child.
