I have health approved premises already - for the pickled.eggs - so anything else we can do involving that wouldn't be an issue. Preserves and jams and sauerkraut etc I can't do - we have demarcation and there are already people doing those. I think I will see if I canbe a bit more organised with the honey.

Basically if the Local Authority are calculating your earnings as you state they are acting unlawfully. If you have applied for HB & they have put you through that process I suggest a formal complaint needs to go in first thing tomorrow, along with an appeal.

Citizens Advice can help, if not PM me

That is the way the new universal credit is going to treat the selfemployed.
