    Hi,
    Can we accept P45s dated with the 3 months as proof of income?

    TIA

    Um, don’t people only get P45s when they leave a job?

    The thing is, you can kind of accept what you want:

    You must have seen evidence of the learner’s gross annual wages in these
    circumstances. This could be a wage slip within 3 months of the learner’s
    learning start date, or a current employment contract which states gross monthly/
    annual wages. Please note this is not an exhaustive list, but must support your decision to award full funding to an individual who would normally be eligible for
    co-funding

    Apologies, I meant a P60 Steve!

    I have asked the Service Desk regarding the above rules and they have just said that as long as we are happy that the evidence would stand up to audit scrutiny we can use discretion ….. which isn’t particularly helpful.

    Thanks

    ha, i did wonder!

    they’re being non-prescriptive on purpose because they don’t want it to be a self-dec because they’re afraid of fraud, but also they don’t want to have to audit the evidence 😉
