Can I use my divorce settlement cash to set up a business ? say 300k Will this be taken into account for housing benefit and tax credits .
I have a disabled child and had to give up work .Hoping I can use the divorce settlement to set up a property company and buy and renovate one or two flats a year and pay my self a wage . Will the benefit agency take into account the divorce settlement as cash in account for housing and tax credit . This is the only way I can hope to work as I have to be on stand by due to child's disability during day time to look after him.
