CSA Advice

Does CSA have to take my annual bonus into account?

I currently pay csa, I get a yearly bonus which can can be anything from 5k to 10k. I don’t mind paying csa but I don’t think I should have to be giving my hard earned bonus. Would rather be using it to give thing to my child direct for myself. Thing is that csa take all my bonus in to account when doing an annual review. Do you think if I showed csa several wage slips showing my normal monthly wage they would recalculate it using those figures?

  1. I think it is yes and subject to the usual percentages for calculating payment, it’s not really fair though. My husband got round this by asking for his bonus via cheque direct from owner/boss but I appreciate not all employers are accommodating.

  2. I think you’ll find that the new system (CMS) go straight to HMRC to find out what your total earnings are for the year.

  3. There appears to be a theme in these posts that the child does not deserve the same standard of living as the father, just “reasonable costs of feeding and housing them”. I suggest that a review of this attitude would be a good idea for those who have their children’s interest at heart.
