    CSA Wrong Calculations 29th Oct 18 at 5:27 PM
    I was wondering if anyone had any advice.

    I'm currently dealing with CMS regarding my arrears. I discovered today that they've worked out my arrears on the basis that last year I made 58,000 (this is the figure they got from HMRC based on my earnings in 2016).

    Last year I took a few months out of work and actually only earned 31,141 (I have a P60 and wage slips to back this up) and not the 58,000 they think I did. I'd imagine they've also used the same figure to work out what I owe this year.

    I've asked them to amend their calculations based on what I've actually earned (31,141) and I will provide evidence for this but I've been told that they will not make these amendments because I didn't come forward with this information back in March when they made the calculations. (FYI I didn't contact them because they had the wrong address for me and I didn't receive the letters).

    Just seems odd that they're trying to charge me on money that I didn't earn and can validate I didn't earn which is also almost double what I'm currently earning.

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you
