    I have a case where their income is equal to their expenses but they have childcare costs in their expenses.

    As Tax Credits give them extra for childcare and we disregard childcare in whole or part on the benefit calculation I was wondering if anyone accepts childcare costs as an expense or ignores it for DHP purposes?

    Thanks

    I see what you are saying, but they have got the money coming in (I presume you are using it all when you tot up their total income), and they have got the money going out – after all they have to pay the childcare provider.
    So long as there is that balance on both sides of the equation, I would certainly consider it a legitimate expense. 8)

    You have to include it, we include [b:2de8a97fdd]all[/b:2de8a97fdd] income, even DLA so it’s only fair to include all expenses.
