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?
