    Hi
    We have a claimant who declares he’s not worked for 2 years and is living on CTC and CHB along with capital. The assessor, on checking bank statements noticed that he is regularly gambling; paying out over £1000 and receiving over £3000 in winnings.

    We believe this should be used as income, but should he be classed as self-employed or should it be added to claim as “other income”?

    Any thoughts greatfully received.
    Thanks
    Helena 😕

    Capital only; see the case
