This might help, it’s the Govt. guidelines about how they calculate child maintenance.

I'm afraid you can't buy things for your daughter and reduce the maintenance, the CSA won't allow that. Don't forget, though, even though your ex is going out and leaving your daughter with whoever, she is still providing a home for her, with food, utilities, clothing etc, and that all costs money, so the maintenance you pay her is still going to your daughter's welfare, at least in part.
