I may be a little late to the party on this one…, but i only work 2 days per month and have some catching up to do!
I’ve just stumbled upon the FM 36 Reports, and have downloaded and started looking at R1, R2, R3.
Apart from the ‘help using this page’ section at the bottom is there any other Guidance or Notes available?
Do you know if the errors/issues raised are carried forward from one submission to another? I have an alarming number of ‘completion holdback’ showing in R1, who do not appear again in R2 or R3. Does this mean they are now cleared? Or still outstanding?
At first glance if i’m to believe the information listed on the reports, then our payments would be significantly lower than they actually are.
Any guidance/tips would be greatly appreciated – i will be tackling these tomorrow.
Thx.November 17, 2020 at 5:22 pm #473606
Have you seen this: Understand your payment guidance
Total earnings for this period
The calculated value of your learning delivery for the latest complete month in this period, provided it falls within the current funding year.
Earnings released from previous periods
Earnings that are typically unlocked from a previous month they were not paid.
Data locks are caused by missing learner records on an ILR submission or where ILR information does not match the apprenticeship service.
An End Point Assessment has been completed but the required employer co-investment hasn’t been recorded on the ILR. The value represents the amount of completion earnings that have not been paid.
Where earnings have gone down from a previous period, your payments are reduced as a result.
Other or known issues
Issues not caused by data lock, completion holdback, clawback or anything listed on your summary. And you have not been paid enough to match your earnings.
ESFA planned payment
Planned payments based on this ILR (does not include payments claimed from EAS) but calculated before considering the maximum contract values.
Co-investment payments to collect
The portion of your payment that must be provided by the employer, following the ESFA having made a co-invested payment.November 17, 2020 at 5:34 pm #473608
Can we do anything about the clawbacks? Do we (provider) get paid less as the result?
Many thanks.November 18, 2020 at 1:48 pm #473709
Clawbacks may be a result of a late notification of a withdrawal or similar activity on the ILR and as such the ESFA are only taking back the funding that was not earned by the provider.

Thanks Martin. That’s what I thought. However, we are seeing clawbacks on the report for the apprentices who are continuing (no breaks/withdrawals). Do you know any other resaons please? Thank you.November 18, 2020 at 2:05 pm #473719
The employer may have stopped or paused the Apprentice or you have Dlock or validation errors, you will need to check the learners on the data report where you can filter by clawback and then check them against the payments report.November 18, 2020 at 2:11 pm #473723
Thanks Martin. The employer hasn’t stopped on DAS or there is no dlock.
I have also checked against the payment report. I found continuing students who have clawbacks have less amount paid than last year. It is not consistent because there are also continuing apprentices but no clawbacks and get paid the same amount as last year.
Do you think we should ask ESFA?
Many thanks.November 18, 2020 at 2:22 pm #473727
I have found that where I had amounts less than last year it was down to late completion or withdrawal of FS aims but have not identified any reported where there was no clawback.
If your are different and you think incorrect then you should take it up with the ESFA.

Thanks Martin. I’ll ask ESFA. Hopefully I’ll get an answer.November 18, 2020 at 3:33 pm #473747November 18, 2020 at 3:37 pm #473749
can anyone help with these numbers please.
The R03 funding summary report shows 5 learners with completion holdbacks but there’s only 3 on the detailed download report! Where can I find the missing 2 please? (It’s not in the R01 or R02 as there are none there).
Additionally, the R14 FM36 summary report is missing/has no data; is this due to a glitch somewhere?
IvorNovember 19, 2020 at 2:11 pm #473799
I think there may be an issue with the report as on mine it says 2 completion holdbacks and the value is zero and they are not on the data report spreadsheet.
I also think the R14 FM36 summary is delayed or has not been issued.
HTHNovember 19, 2020 at 2:41 pm #473803
I have spoken with the ESFA, they told me that there is an error in issuing R14 FM36.
Not hopeful it will be processed as i was advised to check my reports for the info.

Thanks Martin and Dave,
without numbers I know nothing (Kelvin, ironically came up with absolute zero) but with these numbers I know even less.
