Greetings 

Has this tribunal decision or any similar, been reported ? I have an appeal concerning an overpayment created retrospectively due to an artist who reported via a Self Employed proforma  that their leasing charges had ceased. 

Not sure how this could be defended at tribunal using Reg 88. Might work if studio space leasing was their only expense but seeing this expense was one of several , and their partner was also a Self Employed aritst also completing their own Self Employed proforma listing income and expenditure, cant see how they could be reasonably expected to know the overall impact it would have on the household's HB entitlement. 

Opinions welcome.

Thanks & regards
