Objecting to CoA:

Fairgo said
As your objection was already in the system the earlier procedure should have applied as you were acting on information that was supplied to you at the time you lodged your objection.
  Fairgo, I think you are right. Albert should apply to SSAT and base his application on the legislation, which is CS Assessment Act rather than on the CSA Guide. I hope the Act won't be amended before the matter is heard in the SSAT.

Information gathering powers under the Assessment Act:

valere said
FairDeal - Just wondering if one of the Ombudsman's recommendations had been implemented as yet i.e. the recording of all COA interviews.
Will you please point to the reference of the Ombudsman's recommendations.

 
valere said
Even if there is no recording - still put in a complaint - but don't be suprised if there is a sudden denial by the SCO (some of them do tell fibs) - even the more reason to appeal if unhappy.
  Following your advice lodged the complaint.  Will keep you posted on the results.

Thank you all.

Information gathering powers under the Assessment Act:

Thanks everyone for your feedback.

Had a CoA conference. Explained the point  I am making as far as legal obligation to notify. The SCO told me that he is given powers to depart from whatever legislation says. If I am not happy I have right to object to the decision. Unsuccessful… :(  and still not happy, SSAT and then Court could help me to find a piece of mind. - otherwise  - keep on smiling.

Looking for a Fair Deal? Keep looking somewhere else.

Information gathering powers under the Assessment Act

I (payer) have a question.

Many of you probably are familiar with the notice, which is included in every Notice of Child Support Assessment:

IMPORTANT

Changes to your circumstances
To ensure that your child support assessment reflects your current situation, you must tell CSA within 14 days of any changes to your circumstances, such as care arrangement, income, employment status or contact details

I recently asked a customer support officer (CSO) handling my case whether I am legally obliged to comply with the above requirement. An immediate  answer was: "of course you are". "What is it in relation to?" asked CSP. I said that last year the mother (payee) did not tell CSA that her income has dramatically increased, and the amount on the assessment does not reflect her ATI. "Ooooh",  said the CSO. "It makes a difference. No, she doesn't have to tell CSA anything. Her income will be picked up once she has lodged her tax return".

The question. Does a parent has a legal obligation to comply with the notice (like CS Assessment) of the Registrar? Is the section 160 of CSAA applicable?

Thank you for your feedback.
