Our DSAT reports for levy co-investment payments are showing that some employers need to pay around £11 of co-investment, but the levy pot is appearing to cover the full cost of the apprenticeship. Where non-levy employers have paid their co-investment, the reports are still showing the employers need to still pay around £11 of co-investment. Could this be an error with the reports?
We are aware that some employers levy pots are not covering the full funding cost and require to pay co-investment, which you can see on the reports.
I’d use the Contributions report from the post-submission App report pack to check, as I can’t see how PDSAT would know about levy funding? Unless you’ve somehow set the TNP to £11 above the funding band (clutching at straws here!)?
Also, because it’s based on precisely how much an employer has in their pot *that* month (which is based on their HMRC submissions), you can have an employer drop out of levy one month then have loads left over the next month, it doesn’t act retrospectively…
I am interested to know how a training provider is made aware that an Employer has run out of Levy Funds. Is this also reported in the Co-Investment Report? If so how can we distinguish between why an employer appears in this report?
Non-Levy 10% contribution not paid
Levy – TNP is over the funding cap and needs to be paid
Levy – employer run out of funds
I find this report very confusing to work through.
I use the post-submission App report on a monthly basis. Any levy employer who appears in the monthly column gets invoiced. It’s not the same amounts/learners every month because the size of the employer levy pot every month. If you do see the same amounts every month, then yes, the levy pot is probably empty for that particular employer
