Questions about maintenance loan?

Hello, may I ask when clarifying household income on the application for student finance is it only the taxable income? If so do we take away personal allowance of 12,500 for each parent on the total household income?

Do we take away pension contributions on household income?
Does student finance take into account the number of siblings in the family?
Thanks for your time.
You provide your GROSS taxable income. Don’t deduct personal tax allowance.

SFE will ask for pension contributions and will deduct them in the household income calculation.

SFE also disregard around £1000 of household income for any dependent children other than the student.

Okay thank you, when SFE calculate the maintenance loan to give to the student will that take into account the household income without personal tax allowance taken? Sorry if it’s a stupid question.
