    Has anybody used solicitors or a private debt collection agency to try and get outstanding payments that the CMS can’t or won’t collect?

    Hi,

    What reason have the CMS given for not getting payments ? They usually take it from earnings if employed or self employed or from benefits if they are on them althoughits only  between £5-£10 a week from benefits. Unless he’s working cash in hand or is wealthy enough to not work or has gone abroad they should be able to collect. Have you tried the CMS Complaints service ?

    Ex husband is self employed and doesn’t have any assets in his name including bank accounts. CMS have therefore decided to write off the debt he owes but I have filed a complaint with the ICE as the CMS haven’t tried all the enforcement abilities that they have and I know for a fact that removing his driving licence or threat of prison will make him pay as bailiffs had no success.

    so I was just putting feelers out there if the ICE also agree with no further action on my case.

    Maybe tell your ex that you are going to have a word with HMRC as clearly he’s not declaring his income and no doubt you know enough about his business to point them in the right direction.
    Less costly than solicitors, it might help him to play nice!

    I had some success with the CMS complaints system and with ICE but that was about 10 years ago now. ICE have not been so helpful with a current unrelated matter i took to them

    Cariad63 his business is registered on Companies House (Dance/Theatre School) and has an annual turnover of 1/4 million pounds. He used the address of his accountants up until last year when address was changed on Companies House. He is doing annual returns so I don’t think going to HMRC will help as I don’t know how he is paying himself without apparently having a bank account in his name according to CMS?

     

    Plogermans, yes I also had some success previously with the ICE when my case was with the CSA, they missed an opportunity to collect money from him but didn’t act on the information I gave them so ICE found in my favour.

    I’m now waiting on the outcome of how CMS have been mishandling (in my opinion) my case.

    Maybe some pay by cash and he doesn’t declare it andit’s enough for him to live on or maybe he’s managed to open an account in a false name or is using someone elses account, like his parents maybe.
