If its for your tax credits then 40 hours - can justify shortfall of care with paperwork weeks when you have lo less and care when lo is there.

If its for parents tax credits then its purely based on cost.

Hi :),
When your tax credit award is worked out they use the amount you will be earning and the number of hours worked, so to make sure you don't get overpaid and then have to find it to pay back...

I'd say tell them 40 hours to be 'safe' but also keep a record of the actual hours and if there's a massive difference change it... you don't want to get less than you're entitled to either :rolleyes:

hope this helps,
bws, Wendy :D
