I can a cross this new calculator for the CSA which shows the new charges. I am expected to pay (7%) to use this service but am more than willing to create a private agreement with my ex, it would save him a further 20% is family mediation service an option?

Family mediation is always an option and is usually cheaper short-term than arguing about child support through a lawyer or collecting it through an agency. However, whatever method you use to reach the agreement and transfer the money, make sure it is documented and legally binding. People change or take on new commitments and, if you haven't got it properly sewn up at the outset, things can go awry.
