Absentee Payroll (AP) Funding:

For courses with course run start date on or after 1 November 2020, Enterprises will not need to apply for AP Funding. The Training Partner will enrol trainee(s) in Training Partners Gateway (TPGateway) on behalf of Enterprises. Following this, Enterprises will be notified to submit AP Declaration in Enterprise Portal for Jobs & Skills (EPJS) for eligible trainee(s).

The Absentee Payroll Claim Process in EPJS

1. Enrolment: Training Partner (TP) will submit trainee(s) enrolment on behalf of your Enterprise in Training Partners Gateway*
2. AP Declaration: Enterprise receives an email to submit AP Declaration with required information including salary and worked hours for the trainee(s); and update PayNow details. Corppass is required to login to EPJS.
3. AP Disbursement: Enterprise receives AP 3 disbursement(s) via PayNow.

*Important Note: Please ensure you provide TP with your company’s Unique Entity Number (UEN), who is the direct employer of the trainee(s) that also provides salary, statutory benefits, etc. The UEN will be utilised for verification purposes as part of the funding disbursement process.
