Use 'Live' HMRC Data to work out Child Maintenance payment calculations.
Instead of using HMRC Data from the last full financial year to work out Child Maintenance payments for the next year, use 'live' HMRC data, in the same way Universal Credit does. This means payments will be based on last months earnings, not earnings that are in some cases 12 to 24 months old.
Through this pandemic, it has brought to light how out of date and inpractical the CMS is. After 10 months of massivly reduced income, my payments are still based on figures from 2019. The CMS have still not adjusted payments. If however they would use monthly figures from HMRC, the payments could be adjusted monthly. They should have full access to these figures. This would mean, better payment consistency, less non payment and fairer for both parties.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
