Backpay from work 25%

Active Member Registered


I had a family based arrangement but when I got my train driver licence I received a letter and I was put on CSA.

They calculated my last tax year salary at £30,000 and requested me to pay £200 a month which is a lot less then what I paid privately. I explained I had a pay rise to £70,000 but only had one payslip so far, they said they will look into it next tax year but it also says it should change due to the 25%. If she calls as she knows my new salary will this get backdated. My first pay was £5100 after tax due to the backpay. My normal salary is £3700 after tax when they take out my pension. Will they take this into account at my next yearly review or do one off payments not matter as I’m also expected backpay from 2022 at some point 

thank you

It's odd that they don't seem bothered. Usually they expect paying parent to inform them if income changed by 25% or more. Suggest you log into online account and report income change.

Also recommend you seek advice from this paying parent group:
