Hi. Im considering buying a franchise (with my sister). She would buy it. But question is,will it affect my benefits if i go in as licencee? I work full time anyway. But i could not take a cut in any benefit i receive as we barely survive as it is. I'm a single parent. I recieve Working tax credit, child tax credit,child benefit and 1/3 of my rent is paid through Housing Benefit. I dont see the franchise making a profit for a couple of years. Its in pretty bad shape. Any advice welcome.
