I'm woefully out of touch with the way in CS2 now operates and after a
short spell unemployed and then self-employed I'm considering taking
up a permanent position, subject to a final offer. I'm responsible for
paying for a single child on CS2 which IIRC is levied at 15% of net
earnings, subject to allowed deductions from income.
Although I am in a relationship my other half and I live at our own
and separate addresses. I have no dependants living with me. The
position is salaried, so there will be no complications with overtime,
bonuses etc. The salary is £28,000 pa. My basic calculation is that I
will at most and on a monthly basis pay:
Monthly salary - tax & ni * 15%
Which by my reckoning means that I would pay a monthly maximum of
28000 / 12 * 0.76 * 0.15 = £266 pcm
Would this be what I actually pay for one child on CS2, or am I
allowed to make any deductions from my net salary for rent and
wot-not? If so what and how much?
This is quite urgent as I need to make some hasty long term plans so
if anyone can post a reply soon I would be grateful.
