High Income Child Benefit Charge Changes: What do I need to know?

Child Benefit is a payment intended to help parents and guardians with the cost of raising children. However, if you or your partner earns above a certain threshold, you may be subject to the High Income Child Benefit Charge (HICBC), which reduces the benefit’s effectiveness as your income increases. The 2024 Spring Budget has brought some changes to this threshold, aiming to ease the financial burden on families. Let’s delve into what these changes are and what they mean for you.

Understanding High Income Child Benefit Charge

The HICBC is a tax charge that applies to anyone claiming Child Benefit whose income, or their partner’s income, exceeds £50,000 per annum. The charge increases gradually, so by the time a person earns £60,000, the charge effectively cancels out the benefit received. The charge is 1% of the Child Benefit received for every £100 of income over £50,000.

Changes Introduced in the 2024 Spring Budget

The most notable change announced in the 2024 Spring Budget is the increase in the income threshold for the HICBC. Here’s what you need to know:

Threshold Increase: The government has raised the income threshold from £50,000 to £60,000, which means that families where someone earns between £50,000 and £60,000 will no longer have to pay the HICBC.

Full Charge Threshold: For those earning over £60,000, the full charge still applies, meaning that the benefit would be completely offset by the charge once income reaches £70,000.

What This Means for You

This change benefits a significant number of families, reducing their tax liability and potentially improving their overall financial situation. If your income falls within this new bracket, you will see:

  • A reduction in the HICBC you are required to pay.
  • Potentially full retention of your Child Benefit if your income does not exceed £70,000.
