Over simplified; but income from a former partner automatically counts as maintenance – it cannot be treated as “voluntary payments”.

[b:01c8e37006]Sch 5; para 14(2) applies[/b:01c8e37006]. Or, have I missed something?

Unfortunately, there does appear to be a gaping chasm of a loophole in some cases where maintenance is paid, but I don’t intend to offer it for public consumption (for obvious reasons).

If someone else identifies the said loophole and chooses to post, c’est la vie….
