Figures for Working Families Tax Credit published
Tables showing the number and average value of awards of Working Families Tax Credit have been published by the Government Statistical Office.
This is the first in a series of quarterly tables following the replacement of Family Credit with WFTC.
Administered by employers from the beginning of April, WFTC has proved controversial with business groups since the switch in October last year.
The tables cover the new tax credit as well as Family Credit for November 1999.
