CCA is income assessed using the income received by your spouse / partner / civil partner (if applicable) and your child(ren) during the last tax year. 

Any income you declare for yourself will not be taken into account in this calculation.

We will calculate your possible CCA entitlement by working out 85% of the cost for each individual week, up to a maximum, that you've claimed and then reduce the possible year's entitlement by any applicable income.

When you've submitted your completed CCA application, we'll assess your application and notify you of your entitlement for the year based on your estimated costs.
