Calculation—no change in circumstances
Angela is a single parent with two children aged four and five. She is self-employed and works more than 30 hours a week, and has childminding costs of £160 per week.
Her relevant income for tax credits purposes in 2019/20, including her business profits, is £29,000.
As there is no change of circumstances during 2019/20, there is only one 'relevant period' in the period of award (note that if there is more than one relevant period, separate calculations are required for each).
Note that a change in circumstances will mean that the tax credits claim will be migrated to the Universal Credit. See
