At present we only invoice those parents who pay fees or already use hours at another setting, should we be invoicing all parents even those who are funded?

I'm with Wildflowers. Can't see what you would gain by invoicing funded families.

When I've been audited before the council have wanted the free hours shown on a bill. Alot of work for no gain but it might make parents realise that the 'free hours' are actually costing someone.

I was toldto invoice, so parents are fully aware of how many hours they have used and how many are left

Thank you for you replies, it seems a waste of time but if it is a requirement then I'd rather get it right. Why they would need them after we get the parents to sign the funding forms I do not now!

Two words spring to mind No and Chance.......

 

For goodness sake, we have Parental Declaration Forms, we provide Term dates for all parents.......

 

Absolutely refuse to invoice on top of that - grrrrrrrr :angry:

I'm with Sunnyday on this one. Never been told to do this and until someone tells me to and why, I will not be doing it.

perhaps if your LEA are paying you at a lower rate than your supply rate this would be a good idea and then parents can see how much you are losing on funding!!! :blink:

We have been told we need to invoice the free hours- however it can have no monitory value!

I remember being told that I needed to invoice even though we weren't open for 15 hours a week so parents never went over funded hours - I'm afriad I must've had an ear infection that day as I really didn't hear what was said correctly :ph34r:;) so nope never did it!

We too have been told that we must invoice for FEF hours. Presumably to show how many hours have been delivered.
