Hi, I’m hoping someone can help me as slightly confused with how CMS works if the payer has a basic salary but his gross take home pay can double due to commission.
We’ve always had a mutual agreement in regards to child maintenance but he recently changed jobs and was advised he had taken a 50% pay cut there reduced the child maintenance to reflect this. After some digging it turns out his new job has a basic salary but uncapped commission which could double his salary and more.
With it being a new job it will be a few months before he see’s any real commission and I’ve read if he was to earn 25% more then he has to declare this but confused with exactly how this will work.
Can anyone provide any information on how this works please?
Is he self employed? Because if he has an employer they take his figure from his p60 by going straight to tax office as my ex has a salary and gets a yearly bonus so they take the full figure not just what he’s salary paid.
Trouble is it won’t get reviewed for 12 months so currently based on his new lower salary, I asked the question of back pay and if it would be payable in 12 months if he has been under paying it or if it will just set the new amount going forward.
Does anyone have any further insight in to notifying them if they start taking home 25% more?
