Hi there,

This is my first post on this thread so hello to all the other CM's, nannys & APs out there!

I just sent off my CM appn to ofsted today (yay) and I had to pay my GP for filling out the Health Decn Form (£85). Does anyone know if there is any way of recouping this fee from Ofsted or your council? I'm guessing you can't claim it as an expense as I'm not registered as a CM yet.

It's a lot to shell out along with the appn fee etc...

Wow, thats pricey! You can claim it when doing tax return - do you have a receipt?

Mine was funded within my start up grant (£350) from my LA, have you checked that your LA doesnt have a grant?

God that's expensive....shock. Mine was only 25, also funded by start up grant.

Mine was 85 too - it is shocking. There is no start up grant here so the only consolation is that it can be deducted from profit (hmm) for tax purposes.

thanks for the replies. i will find out if i am eligible for a start up grant as that would be really useful.

good to know too though that i can claim it back as a tax expense. i did get a receipt in case i could

Mine was only £17 must have a cheapy GP, didn't get funded here either, but keep all your reciepts for everything you buy even if you arn't trading yet you can still claim expenses for your start up costs.

Welcome to MN by the way.
