New Services Makes Child Maintenance Deduction Easier

A new service launched this month making it easier for businesses to meet their legal obligation to deduct child maintenance from employees’ wages. The service is set to benefit around 40,000 employers.

The Child Maintenance Service Employer Self Service will replace the old paper-based system with a new free online portal.

It works like online banking, helping employers manage their account whenever it is convenient for them to do so. They can check their monthly Deduction from Earnings Order schedules, make safe and secure payments, send enquiries and give feedback.

Work & Pensions Minister Steve Webb said:

This new online service will reduce the time and effort needed for employers who have to deduct child maintenance for their staff and will be particularly helpful to small businesses.

We are replacing the outdated child maintenance system with a more efficient streamlined service to better support parents and employers.

The new online service is available for all employers who administer Deduction from Earnings Orders with the Child Maintenance Service and will help ensure these payments are accurate and paid on time, every time.

Businesses can report when any employee for whom they deduct maintenance stops working for them in one easy click through to the HMRC website.
