star this property answer text <p> </p><p>In March 2013, information was extracted from HMRC's tax credit system in respect of the number of families claiming tax credits where, if claiming as a couple, at least one of the family members was recorded as being a non-UK national when they registered for a National Insurance number.</p><p> </p><p>The extract shows that as at March 2013, 715,900 such families were claiming tax credits. If we assume no further changes until the end of the relevant year, the annual tax credits entitlement of these awards was £4.9 billion. The same extract showed that the total number of families claiming tax credits was 4,705,100 with an annual entitlement of £29.55 billion.</p><p> </p><p>For this purpose, as nationality was based on nationality at the time a claimant first registered for a National Insurance Number (NINO)the nationality of some of those claimants may have since changed. The information is not therefore sufficiently reliable to be used for formal statistical purposes.</p><p> </p><p>Based on this information the numbers of non-UK nationals claiming Tax Credits as a percentage of the entire Tax Credits population are broadly in line with the percentage of non-UK nationals in the UK workforce (according to figures in the 2013 Labour Force Survey complied by the ONS).</p><p> </p>
