Hi

If I am on UC and I receive LCWRA and I am self employed, every month I do my income and expenses.  Because I do delivery work I work like to hire someone I know to help me for the shift and I would then pay them a daily amount.

Can I include this as an expense when doing my income and expenditure?  Because my gross profit will be after expenses and after I have paid him for his help during the week.

Thank you for any information.

Regards,
