star this property answer text <p>When the Child Maintenance Service (CMS) makes a calculation it is based initially on income information received directly from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). Having access to HMRC income information allows the Child Maintenance Service to capture a much wider range of income types received by paying parents. In addition to a parent’s gross annual income, we can capture income derived from property, savings and investments (including dividends) and other miscellaneous income. This is unearned income can be included in the calculation if a request is made to vary the calculation. In December 2018 we introduced new powers which also enable us to target complex earners via a calculation of notional income based on their assets.</p><p> </p><p>Cases involving complex income or suspected fraudulent behaviour can be looked into by the Financial Investigation Unit (FIU). This specialist team can request information from a range of financial institutions to check the accuracy of information the Child Maintenance Service is given. The financial institutions are legally bound to supply the information. When an investigation finds evidence of criminality, the FIU will seek to prosecute or forward to HMRC for fraud action.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence (MOD) puts safety at the heart of all its procurement activities, from setting initial requirements, through to procurement and safe operation of equipment and, ultimately, disposal. In Defence Equipment and Support, this is facilitated through the Acquisition Safety and Environmental Management System, which is used to ensure that safety training and equipment standards are considered in all procurement activity. Safety performance is routinely considered at Board level, with the MOD continually looking for opportunities to improve safety standards and reinforce a strong safety culture at every level. Underpinning this, the Defence Safety Authority provides independent assurance that MOD safety policy is being promoted and implemented.</p> more like this
