:laughing: You can claim for anything you would not normally have spent if you hadn't been working as a childminder.

I'm not sure though, whether it would be a percentage or the full amount. I would think the full amount but I don't want to tell you the wrong thing.

I would suggest a call to the tax office to double check... then let us all know! :D

I'd agree - I think you should be able to claim the amount you have paid for your course because it is wholly related to your work.

I'd also claim for any other course related expenses such as text books or travel expenses if you have to go to college
