Can the CSA demand I pay them?
December 31, 2012
In May this year I left the UK and now work for an American Co on cruise ships all around the World – I do not pay tax to the UK or indeed any country as I am not redisent in any country and I work off shore. The CSA has contacted me through my parents address in the UK and are asking me to send proof of my income – even though they are aware of the situation.
Do I have to provide evident to them and can they demand I make payment to them? I have never admitted to being the father and have never had a relationship with this girl just a one night stand when she presented herself at my door one evening. However, by default the CSA made a decision that I must be the dad as (according to them) I never replied to any of their letters which they were sending to a very old address.
Prior to my leaving the country earlier this year I was having money taken from my unemployment benefit. Can you advise where I stand?
