What have previous delegates said about this course?
"Tax credits are so complicated. I felt the course was very good and very helpful, especially the overpayment side of things. It was good to go through stage by stage. The exercises were very good and the course material was all very helpful, I still use this within my current role specifically to refer to when dealing with technical issues, I feel I can rely on the documents provided." (Vandana Rawal, Hounslow Race & Equalities Council, following attendance on Tax Credits - the tricky bits course - October 2009)
