The criteria for application can vary to extreme degrees with both and here we have broken down the two types of Tax Credit you can apply for.
Working Tax Credit
Working Tax Credits is a payment that can be made to an individual who is on a low income and working over 30 hours per week. These credits are for those people who work for an extended period, yet are still on a lower income. There is a possibility that a further rebate can be arranged if you have children, but you can still apply if you are childless.

Couples must make a different type of application and may not be eligible for some of the top-up payments or ‘elements’ that are available.
Child Tax Credits
Child Tax Credits can be applied for by any person with at least one child. Recent reforms to the benefit, however, have made these more available to single parents or those who are on a lower income. You do not have to be in work to apply for Child Tax Credits; you can be unemployed, and it will not affect your claim. Child Tax Credits can start at approximately £545 a year and can rise to £2750.
