[Solved] Csa and pension

Estimable Member Registered


I currently place 10 % of my pay into a pension

What is the maximum amount I could pay without upsetting the csa?

There is no set maximum, but this might help

Basically, if the CMS think you are paying into the pension as a way to avoid or reduce maintenance payments, then they may deem it not allowable. My ex tried this a long time ago with me, when she tried to pay 100% of income (yep, all of it) into pension - the CSA (as it was then) disallowed the whole payment she was paying into pension (I had assumed they'd allow perhaps 20%), so the safe (and moral) solution is to be reasonable about it.
