Annual HLC Returns

Each year we invite clergy who were eligible for our HLC scheme at 31 March to tell us how much they spent in the previous year and to provide an estimate of their costs for the coming year via MyView.

It is important that those eligible for the scheme complete the form each and every year to continue to access the full benefits of the scheme, which includes savings on tax and National Insurance. Those who aren't eligible for the scheme, or don't complete their form, can still claim some tax relief via their tax return.

HLC Annual Return 2021

We contacted clergy who need to complete this form on 2 July 2021 and the deadline has now passed. If you were due to completed this form and missed the deadline you will need to complete your 2021-2022 form in order to reinstate your HLC allowance.  We won't be able to make any adjustments to the allowance received in 2020-21 or 2021-22 and this will need to be adjusted via the tax return for that year.  We will contact you once the Annual Return for the year ending 31 March 2022 is available.
