Child benefit charge: Any advice for families?

The new high income child benefit charge (HICBC) applies from 7 January – and anyone wishing to opt out of receiving child benefit for the 2012-13 tax year must do so before that date.

The Telegraph has warned of “tax chaos” as benefit cuts loom and follows Rebecca Benneyworth’s “train wreck” comments back in October.

How much will it add to the workload of the Revenue and advisers?

What advice and knowledge from the community is there on the incoming charge?
