If so are you claim much back on your tax return?

if you were leasing a car to use for childminding only, you could claim back the whole amount you pay, (providing the list price wasnt above £12,000) providing you were only using the car for childminding.
if you are using the car for household use and childminding you can claim 40p per mile you drive to cover petrol and wear and tear.

my dh is an accoutant and has said that if the car is over £12,000 and only using for cm, he can give you the exact calculation to work out what you can claim.

Thank you, that does help.

I really want to get a C8 because I need it for CM'ing but I will also be using it for the family. Although if I was'nt cm'ing I wouldnt need such a big car.

Think I may just save up and get a used one.
