    My dad listed his monthly expenses and wants me to contribute £600 a month to this: Attachment 553286

    I recently got a job that I'm excited about but with this, having to pay £180 a month for a travelling to work, and me giving him £900 last month (so he doesn't have to get a loan) I'm getting quite worried

    While the net result is out of order (30k a year on bills...) I don't know enough to see what is reasonable and what is not. Can anyone help?

    Your attachment doesn't work, if you're trying to show us a picture or screenshot upload it to imgur and then give us the link.

    Not entirely sure I understand what you mean with those numbers. Please be as clear as possible.

    what is reasonable is more dependent on what your dad wants you to pay towards... £600 a month wouldn't cover rent, bills, council tax, internet, TV, food in many places so me that's a reasonable sum to ask for, you're still saving money... I think the £600 must be more than 'expenses' (i.e. just your added cost of bills/food) but that doesn't make it unreasonable
