E109 We will only pay one incentive payment for hiring a new apprentice per individual apprentice, across all employers (or those with whom the apprentices mentioned in paragraph E107 have made their arrangements).
E110 Where the apprentice for whom you are claiming incentive payments for hiring a new apprentice has previously been made redundant from an apprenticeship with another employer who did not claim the incentive payment for hiring a new apprentice, that apprentice must:
E110.1 have a contract of employment with you (or an apprenticeship agreement if they are the same thing) the maintained school, or the connected company or charity (see paragraph E107), containing a start date between 1 August 2020 and 31 January 2021 (inclusive); and
E110.2 be able to continue their apprenticeship with you (see redundancy rules in paragraph E24).
It’s one incentive payment that you receive in two chunks, not two incentive payments (SEMANTICS!!!!)
