Child maintenance liabilities are calculated as a percentage of a paying parent’s gross annual income. Given the rate of income tax in Scotland and the level of the liability we have determined that paying parents are not disproportionately impacted. Therefore, we have no plans to conduct an assessment of the potential merits in devolving child maintenance liabilities to Scotland.</p> more like this
