Starting up a small business whilst on ESA

Tinks07 Member Posts: 3 Listener
Hi there.

im getting really confused by all the different types of advice I’ve been given. I want to turn my hobby into a small business. I won’t be making any profit for a few years & due to my illnesses will only be working a max of 10 hrs per week. I’m on support ESA & wondering how if will affect my benefits. I’ve even spoke to 2 diff advisors & 1 said I can earn up to £120 per week & work up to 16 hrs per week & another didn’t know. Please can some1 help, I find things difficult to understand at the best of times. Many thanks Tinks07
