The earnings adjustment statement (EAS) is an online process that you use to claim funding that you cannot report in the ILR.
It is not a mandatory return; you only use the EAS when you are claiming for funding as specified in the funding rules.
What can be claimed through EAS
You can claim the following funding in the EAS:
- Excess learning support
- Prince’s Trust
- Authorised claims (including audit adjustments)
- Learner support
- Vulnerable student bursary, the discretionary bursary and free meals
- Earnings adjustments for devolved authorities
You cannot claim exceptional learning support through EAS. To do this, you must complete the exceptional learning support cost form.
How do you return EAS data
EAS is a comma separated value (CSV) data collection and you upload your submission through submit learner data.
Further guidance on the EAS is available on GOV.UK.
If you have a specific query about the EAS, please contact the ESFA through our enquiry form.
