Hi all,

Does anyone know where there is a list of all the paperwork needed before and after a birth, or if there isn't one can we create one?

I think pre birth you need:
Mat B1
FW8 to apply for a Maternity exemption certificate

After birth:
Register at local office or during hospital stay (within 42 days) to get Birth Certificate
Child benifit form (even for those who don't qualify for any. I think!?)
Passport, a good 6 weeks before you want to travel

I have just stumbled across these really, are there more?

With child benefit, even if you don't want the money (due to a higher rate tax payer in the family), you still ought to claim it, but opt out of receiving payments, as that way you still get your NI/pension stamps while you're not working.

That was a loooooooong sentence. Sorry.

Ah yes, that is right, I knew there was a reason for it!
