Hi, I'm a self employed father, separated from my wife for over three years now.
We're trying to agree the monthly child maintenance payment amount but I need to clarify a few things [I've edited the other points out as have found an answer to those already].
For self employed people, are business expenses deducted from the gross earnings figure? I'm a little confused about this, as it's deducted from the business, not me, and the business effectively reimburses me for it, so I can't see how this gets deducted, but one website I came across stated that business expenses were deductible?!
