    I’ve been looking through the guidance documents but can’t see any sort of quote about this, so thought I’d open it up for feedback on here…

    We have a number of employers that have 16-18 Apprentices (eligible for the £1,000 incentive) as well as 19+ Apprentices where they have to pay.

    Is there anywhere in the funding rules where it states we cannot offset the Incentive Payment received from ESFA against any potential invoice for a 19+ learner? And in most circumstances, just pay the employer the difference?

    I know there are rules about showing transactions, but if the Employer has 1 financial account with us, this would show the trail of funds?

    Hi Paul,
    I am sure that even though not documented you are not able to offset co-investment against any incentive payments and that you must have evidence of collection of co-investment payments.
