    Does anyone have any advice on what to do when an absent parent creates a limited company to avoid paying CM?

    I work fulltime but I am struggling with his contribution of £10 per week based on a declared GROSS income of £181 per week but he is hiding behind his Director position in the company that he solely owns! I pay everything inc mortgage, bills etc and we have had no contact with him (his choice) for 7 years.

    Thanks in advance.

    It sounds like your ex is going to pay himself in dividends which won’t have a paperwork trail until after the end of his financial year.

    The CMS won’t see his income for a while. All you can do is tell them, and ask for a review after he  submits his company accounts which you should be able to find at companies house.

    Dividends will only be included in the calculation if more than 2.5k

    He may well be using the company to legally offset expenses etc so he will have a low income, with high expense refunds with low dividends.

    As pp said you can apply for a variation but I wouldn’t hold your breathe.
