    CMS Payments, what effects them? 8th Dec 16 at 12:30 PM
    Hi,

    The CMS have been in touch about a case between myself and my ex. She wants to move the case to them instead of sorting something out between ourselves, therefore prompting an income review on my part.

    I have had a pay rise in the last year, but I have also a significant mortgage and other financial commitments (loans for example).

    My question is will they take my mortgage and other commitments into consideration, or just expect me to pay according to my gross weekly salary as outlined on the Government Website?

    Thanks.

    This is where it is unfair, I am in process of arguing my case (always paid for my kids, on time and have them on a regular basis). There is no monetary value to my car so why should it be taken into account?

    Casting my mind back, that was the way that the tax system looked at company cars until 1976, but for the last forty years, company cars have had a value attributed to them and this forms part of the taxpayer's income and tax has to be paid on it. If it is included in the gross income for child support purposes, that's really what you'd expect. If you had a different deal with your boss (eg, where you used your own car and got an allowance), you'd expect the allowance to be taxed and subject to national insurance, as well as to child maintenance.

    I agree it is a taxable benefit. But I do not get extra cash for having the car. If I had an allowance then yes I see how that could be added to my income, but being as I am taxed best part of £300 for the car I do not see how it should be included in my "earnings".

    I have mentioned this point to them too, and they have asked for wage slips for last couple of months.

    I do not mind paying, but based on their original letter I would end up with nothing left to live on after I've paid my rent etc!
