Do I include child maintenance received monthly as part of my income? I'm a provisional tax payer, and would like to start on preparing my IRP6 due in Aug. Also, my daughter lives with me, and contributes a monthly amount towards household expenses. Does this amount also have to be calculated as income?

No you do not need to include these two amounts in your tax return.
