You are entitled to Child Benefit payments if you are responsible for bringing up a child who is under 16, or under 20 if they stay in approved education or training. It is a non-taxable benefit, which can be claimed at a current rate of £21.80 per week for your eldest (or only) child, and then £14.45 per week for each further child. Although Child Benefit isn’t means tested and isn’t taxable as such, you may be subject to a tax charge to essentially ‘claw back’ some or all of the benefit if income exceeds £50,000. This is called the High Income Child Benefit Charge (HICBC).
