CSA/CMS

I have had a standard letter today saying my arrangement is ending in September as the CSA scheme is being replaced by a government one
Now that's fine and I've read the leaflet with the options
I phone CMS to clarify a few issues and have been told that the amount I receive each month will now be based on my exs NET income and the percentage will now be 12% and not 15%
By my calculations I will lose around £100 a month!
Now I don't have the greatest relationship with the ex who would pay nothing ( and has in the past and this has involved attachments of earnings etc)
Am I understanding this correctly????

Csa is based on net the new one is based on gross from what I understand, that's why the % is smaller
