Short nameNETFEE
Description

This field will capture the net fee charged, that is after any financial support from the provider such as waivers are taken into account.

Applicable toEngland Scotland
Coverage

Required unless you are an approved (fee-cap) provider and COURSEAIM begins with C, H, I or J, or is equal to M22, M26, M28, M71, M73, M78, M88 and SSN exists. Optional for providers in Scotland.

Notes

This field captures the net fee; that is the fee charged after any financial support from the provider such as waivers are taken into account. For example; a student with a Instance.GROSSFEE of £9,000 who has had a fee waiver of £1,000 should be returned as 8000 in this field.

The Instance.NETFEE returned should be the exact fee, including VAT e.g. £6,551 and not rounded.

This field does not need to be returned for students undertaking an Apprenticeship standard or framework.

The Instance.NETFEE should be the annualised amount and if a student leaves the provider part the way through the instance year, the annualised amount the student would have been charged should still be returned as Instance.NETFEE.

Students who do not have any financial support will have the same value returned in both Instance.GROSSFEE and Instance.NETFEE.

Where Instance.GROSSFEE exists Instance.NETFEE must also exist and be less than or equal to the value of Instance.GROSSFEE.

Where the NHS or other body pays a per-capita charge equivalent to a fee this should be recorded in this field. However where the NHS pays a single fee that is not linked to individual students then zero should be returned.

Instance.NETFEE is not required for incoming exchange students or dormant students.

Examples

A student with a Instance.GROSSFEE of £9,000 who has had a fee waiver of £1,000 should be returned as 8000 in this field.

Students who do not have any financial support will have the same value returned in both Instance.GROSSFEE and NETFEE.
