NEW BUSINESS BANKING SERVICE FOR CHILD MAINTENANCE
March 14 2013.


A new service has been launched to make it easier for businesses to meet their legal obligation to deduct child maintenance from employees’ wages. Called the Child Maintenance Service Employer Self Service, it replaces the old paper-based system with a new free online portal.


The service is akin to online banking, and employers can check their monthly Deduction from Earnings Order schedules, make safe and secure payments, send enquiries and give feedback. Through the system, businesses can report when any employee for whom they deduct maintenance stops working for them.

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has set up a team to deal with any enquiries from employers about child maintenance. CLICK HERE for more information.
