This will include all of the income you have and all expenses you need to pay monthly, including your essential expenses such as your mortgage, rent and utilities and council tax. There will also be payments for priority debts like secured loans and hire purchase. As well as essential expenses and priority debts there will also be monthly allowances for expenses such as food, clothing, maintenance, hobbies and other living expenses.
