STATEMENT OF INCOME AND EXPENSES
GROSS INCOME with receipts
INCOME FROM CHILD CARE FOR REGION CHILDREN
INCOME FROM CHILD CARE FOR PRIVATE CHILDREN
Important: Keep records of how many children you had each day, full time and part time.
Why? If not CRA allows only six (6) dollars per child per day full time and three (3) dollars
per child per day part time. You must also state at what time the children arrive in the
morning and at what time they leave at night. Do you have children over the weekend? Are
some areas of the house permanently set up as a day-care space or they are available to the
family once the children leave. Keep a record of which rooms are used. Do you have a room
used only as an office?
