Child Benefit - High Income Calculations
The amount you will be charged will depend on the amount of Child Benefit you are receiving and the level of your adjusted net income.
The charge will vary depending on whether your adjusted income falls between £50,000 and £60,000 or is over £60,000.
A charge of 1% of the sum you receive as Child Benefit will be payable for every £100 of adjusted income between £50,000 and £60,000. The charge will always be less than the total amount of the Child Benefit payment.
The charge will be calculated as follows:
Where the adjusted net income is above £60,000 the charge will be equal to the full amount of Child Benefit you, or your partner, are entitled to receive effectively wiping out the benefit.
