Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
How much is he paying - and what income doe she have?
Did he discuss this with you before he started paying?
Sorry that should have read "what income does he have"?
What dividend did he take last year?
I am trying to work out if it is financially worth while for you to challenge the fact that no this is not how he should be doing it.
He should not be paying the money as a salary - and of course it is not to your benefit that he does.
The CMS will NOT regard money paid in this way as being Child Maintenance
Please ask if you need further details
1. Child Maintenance Service (although if the child does not live in the UK they will not be involved
2. Should you get a real job then you would end up paying more tax than you would otherwise as your Tax allowance will have been taken up by this false "job"
3 and 4. There is no Company Law offence involved as such so no one to report it to and no benefit to be obtained by doing so
1. Yes - but do consider the economics first
3&4 - From a Company point of view if he wishes to pay a salary to someone and let them do nothing then that is his problem - he is not defrauding anyone since he "is"
Technically it could be seen as a way of avoiding corporation tax - but the state will be getting more in Income Tax and National Insurance than they are losing that way so there is actually no loss to the State
