If you are still entitled to tax credits then any overpayment will be recovered from your ongoing claim. They will reduce your payments until the debt is cleared.

If you are only entitled to a small amount this may mean your payments stop so check your new award notice

We got overpaid by about £3000 due to them not updating my changed childcare amounts. They have advised they will reduce future payments to recoup the money but I don't know by how much as we are not getting anything until next renewal due to the overpayment.
