Child Support legislation will only allow the transfer of an old scheme case to the new scheme where there are prescribed links to a new scheme application. In such cases, the new calculation will be based on the new scheme percentage rates of 15, 20 and 25 per cent. of net income depending on the number of children.
In cases where there is no such link, any reassessment will be carried out under the old rules.
Following Sir David Henshaw’s review we have set out our proposals for the transition from the current to the new arrangements in the White Paper published on 13 December 2006.
