    My parents get around £3000 a year in child tax credit for me. I want to start a part time job, around 16 hours a week, so I'll earn around £5300 a year. Will my parents not receive the child tax credit if I start working? Is it not worth working?

    Also how much would I get taxed if I do work? Thank you.

    All depends on your household income whether it puts them over the threshold for claiming or not and you wouldn't get taxed but you d pay national insurance.

    You won’t get taxed or pay NI earning that much. I’ve only paid NI once when I did a load of overtime, even then it was less than a quid

    You’ll still be in full time education or training so they are eligible to apply
    I’m not sure that a child’s income counts in the assessment
    Speak to a benefits advisor/tax credit helpline/citizens advice and get a proper answer
