Confused at CSA making up my income!

With normal run of the mill NRP, in work earning a wage as such, they would need to back track to HMRC, and conclude checks that the RP was in fact in receipt of CB etc.
This case I would assume that all agencies would cross refer and thus make the process easier. I don't know for sure about case start times in this situation, we can only surmise I guess.

The other thing is if they can access HMRC themself, or if they have to request information from them, as from April 2017, all employers now have to report in real time, pay and NI/Tax Deducted to HMRC. I know from my own Personal Tax Account that the day after pay day, my year to date earnings have been updated.

I think this real time reporting was due to Universal Credit, as there is a lot of people whos wage is never the same every time. In my case, I do job and finish, and as I am not on Universal Credit, I claim Tax Credits (where I have to give them an estimate) and Housing Benefit, where they wanted to see the first 3 x 2 week wage slips, and then said i only have to contact them again if my average changes significantly. On Universal Credit, it would look at what has been paid that month, and then do a calculation every month.

In my case, I was getting CB what was looked up while i was on the phone to them, making the claim.
If residence had recently changed, and Child Benefit was not in payment, perhaps sitting in the Rival Claim Unit waiting for evidence, that would also delay things, resulting in a later case year start date.
Posts made by me are my opinion and any factual information should be checked out. If you do not have a Solicitor, often your local CAB can get you some initial advice.
