Parents income - benefits?

I’m trying to work out how much my daughter is likely to get for her maintenance loan for a course starting in Sep 20, living away from home in London.

Do we count the tax credits and child benefit we receive as our income? I can’t seem to find anything that says what benefits we include or might exclude.

Also, as I’m self employed and I made a loss in the year that is assessed, for tax credit purposes, I can deduct this loss from my husband’s income. Does that apply for student finance as well, or not.
