Hi,

This is my first post, thank you for having me :beer:

I am looking to go bankrupt in the new year. I had a franchise business that didn't work out. I received no income for 6 months off it, ran out out of money (and then credit) in trying to get it off the ground (I had no debt and paid credit off in full each month before this). The franchisor didn't help and the first phone call I got when asking for help was from a debt collector asking for £15,000 for loss of future earnings. I went back to my old work place and am currently working as a relief care worker to earn some money.

I have read through a lot of threads, the Technical Manual and spoken with debt line but wanted to get the right level of income/expenses to achieve a fair level with a potential IPA. I understand that some things are high but I'm stating everything on here, for example we took out 2 year contracts on mobiles but the money issues have only been last 6 months. We have 2 kids with 1 (maybe more...) on the way and my income states £800 a month but I have no guaranteed hours (effectively a zero hour contract). I have also pro rata'd some expenses, e.g. council tax, term-time childcare. Is that the right way or do I put monthly cost? Here is the SoA:
