We know that foster caring is not the same as people who sell goods and services to others, and for this reason there's a special scheme for foster carers called "qualifying care relief". You can find more about this in help sheet HS236.
If you are new to foster caring you may find our online guide helpful. It includes details on how to register, qualifying care relief, record keeping , national insurance, completing your self-assessment tax return and more.
If you have a technical query you can find more information in the Business Income Manual.
You can also ask us your questions below; our Advisers are here to help you. Please remember don't include any personal details such as your National Insurance number.
