I have been offered a part time job - 2 days a week, and the hours are 16 in total, but the company are only paying me for 14 hours because of lunch breaks. Would I still qualify for tax credits?

I don't think so, think you have to work 16 or 16 1/2 hours to qualify

No, you need 16. Otherwise you have no right to tax credits.

Child tax credit yes, but wtc doesn't kick in until 16 hours.
