We have a learner who is about to start her apprenticeship programme with us. The employer is a Levy paying employer which only has a small amount of levy funding in their account and will therefore be required to pay the a 10% contribution for the outstanding balance. Has anyone come across this and if so how did you record the incidents on the ILR? Any help would be greatly appreciated as our MIS service provider is not being particularly supportive.
You just record as normal with ACT set to 1 for a Levy paying employer, when the levy pot is dry the funding report will detail the co-investment amount to be collected from the employer for that month.
This is the report you should check each month:
Apps Co-Funding Contributions Report
23. This is a new report for earnings generated under Funding model 36 (Apprenticeships
from 1 May 2017). This report will only be generated when the ILR submission window
24. This report shows the co-investment required from employers for each month, for each
apprentice. The employer is identified using the Employer identifier recorded in the ILR.
25. If no co-investment is required, this report will be blank.
Within this report, there is the column called ‘Total employer contribution collected (PMR) in this funding year’ which is the PMR value on the ILR, and also a column called ‘Total co-investment (below band upper limit) due from employer in this funding year’.
I have learners on here with ‘0’ in the ‘collected’ column but values in the ‘due’ column, we collected the 10% contribution prior to 17/18 so aren’t due any more form the employer, am I looking at this the wrong way?
