Tax Credits: Appointees
This section of the site explains what an appointee is in relation to tax credits and how to become an appointee.
Appointees are distinct from intermediaries and agents. They are people who have been appointed to act for someone who cannot manage their own affairs. An appointee has a legal right to act for the claimant and can do more than intermediaries and agents such as making a claim and receiving payments on behalf of a claimant.
The HMRC website has lots of information about becoming an appointee for tax credits purposes.
