    Thanks in advance for reading this post.

    A quick question.

    Is income on consent orders the normal "net income"?

    There is no salary sacrifice or negative gearing just income minus normal deductions = net income

    Thanks

    I thought I should clarify.

    The consent orders show my full income prior to any deductions. I do a lot of driving as part of my job and this reduces my income by so $6-7K pa.

    So stating my income without this deduction seems to misrepresent my position. Shouldn't my weekly income be my annual taxable income divided by 52?

    Thanks

    I'd put the gross income based on the last tax return

    Thanks sammy.

    I would have said the same but my wife’s lawyer was adamant that it was my net income prior to any deductions? I don’t think she is trying to scam me, just mistaken.

    This doesn’t make sense to me. If I were self-employed, I'm sure it could not be income before expenses were deducted. That would be multiples of my actual income.
