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, regardless of the make-up of their household.</p><p>HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) continue to consider ways in which they can improve communications to raise awareness of HICBC. HMRC recently undertook external research and used the findings to make changes to their guidance and communications on HICBC. They also improved the Child Benefit claim form to make clearer what choices people have on HICBC when they claim the benefit.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The underlying principle of an apprenticeship is that it is a paid job, and the benefits system treats an apprenticeship in the same way as any other job. Apprentices are employed and do not have to contribute to the costs of their learning, and acquire skills much valued in the labour market. Apprentices on low incomes may be able to claim Universal Credit or tax credits to help with living costs.</p><p>As paid employment and a foundation for a successful career, an apprenticeship sets young people up on the path to financial independence. On average, a level 2 apprenticeship boosts your earnings by 11% and a level 3 apprenticeship by 16%.</p> more like this
