I'm trying to figure out if I would qualify for the PPL for my bub due in Feb. Df and I are self employed, he is a tradie and I do all the admin/accounts/bookkeeping for the business. All the income goes into 1 account then at the end of the financial year the profit is split between the 2 of us on our tax returns. I work approx 10 hours per week from home. The hours aren't set times on set days though. I aim to do an hour per day then half a day on Thursdays when ds2 is in daycare, but sometimes more time on other days when there is extra things that need doing.
I don't keep any sort of timesheet for the hours I work so does any one know how I could prove my hours to Centrelink or what documents I might need to prove that I work?

You should meet it. Check that you meet the eligibility and work test
You don't necessarily HAVE to be able to prove it. I qualified for the paid parental leave, and part of my work was self-employed with no real evidence. When I put in the application, I was told that there was no documentation required. I kept a copy of that in writing. Had they then come back and told me I needed evidence, I could have put together some emails and rough estimates of when/what hours I'd worked...but that would have been it. All went well, as I've since been paid the lot.
