Child Benefit is receivable by a person who is responsible for a child until they reach 16, or 19 if they stay in education or training.

If the person or their spouse or partner has adjusted net income above £50,000 the person with the highest income has to pay some of the Child Benefit as a tax charge. Where adjusted income is more than £60,000 a year the tax charge equals the benefit received.
