Hi, thanks for your question. Have you applied to recalculate his legal liability?
Despite the company running at a loss it would be what he is actually earning that needs to be investigated. In the circumstances I would suggest you contact the CSA/CMS to request an updated calculation and assessment and provide them this new information to assist them. They will then do the leg-work and report back to you with their decision.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.

Just to add to the above
It is a peculiarity of the system than any first assessment does NOT take account of dividends received from a Company.
Accordingly once the re-assessment has been completed you then need to ask for a review based on the fact that he also receives dividends.

Thank you - it is for the CSA to carry out these investigations to ascertain his true income and his child maintenance liability.
As the CSA have jurisdiction in this matter a court will unfortunately not deal with an application regarding child maintenance
