No, tax credits are paid to the primary carer (usually the mum) regardless who fills in the form as the primary applicant.

My hubby filled in the form, my details went in as his partner and we supplied my bank details for the money to be paid into.

Its usually paid in every week/month whichever you decide. You may get one off payments here and there if your situation changes.

IF your earn more, it sometimes means your tax credits will drop a little. If your childcare costs are higher, you will get a lil bit more help.

Utlimately, Tax credits are there to offer a little help financially with things like childcare.

You can request for the forms and complete majority of it but you should send it after you have had the baby. It asks for you to complete all of the babys details such as name/dob etc.

No, the more you earn the less you get, child tax credits are available to everyone whose household income is below 60k a year. It is a flat rate to everyone within that earnings bracket, with extras available if your child is less than 1 year old, has a disability etc. If your household earnings are above 60k you don't get anything.

Working Tax Credits are only available to those whose household income is below 16k a year. Chilldcare costs come under WTC, not CTC.
