    What are Essential Outgoings? 19th Jan 07 at 11:38 PM
    Have had a look at the CCCS website and am getting a call for the SOA next week.

    Am a bit confused as I've been told that things like newspapers, fags, Sky TV etc cannot be included as essential outgoings. It also appears that you are quite limited with the amount you can claim for phones etc i.e I have a landline, a broadband account and a mobile and this adds up to 80 pm. Our dog also has an ongoing medical condition which costs at least 50 pm but it appears you cannot spend this much....looks like the pooch will have to be put to sleep

    only joking....but seriously, can someone explain what CCCS will actually allow to be included.
