Thanks for all your help. Have just found 02/03 -£15.25 and 10.55. Child Tax Credit people are saying we've been overpaid but I have a feeling they're trying to reclaim more than they've paid us. I'm trying to work it out but as I've banked Tax Credits along with child benefit I need to separate them out for the past couple of years to see what's what. Thanks again.
