Not sure if this belongs here or in the Money section...
At the moment we get the minimum amount of CTC with both our salaries, I'm currently on Maternity leave where i'm getting full pay for 26 weeks, then would get SMP for 13 weeks then nothing up to the year.
i've been planning on going back after 6 months as not sure can afford to drop to SMP, but someone told me that we would be entitled to extra tax credits for those few months i'd be on reduced/no pay. Is this the way it works?
Thanks!

LeninGrad is right, in our situation it doesn't help though as we still only qualify for min CTCs.
