Change of employer resulting in over funding band maximum



Please could someone offer their understanding of a change of employer <30 days.  I have an apprentice who has the below change of employer dates.  I'd arranged with employer 1 a refund of the co-investment based up to the amount due to Nov 23 as they would not be liable for the 5% of the December payment (my understanding of the funding).  I'd also worked out the TNP3 and TNP4s for employer 2 but I now have an above funding band price which is the December payment as I worked out the new TNPs based on the fact that employer 1 had only used up to Nov 2023.

employer 1: 23/12/2023 last day of employment.

employer 2: 02/01/2024 first day of employment.

Am I right to say that I now need to go back to the employer 2 and explain that I've over charged them by the December value (£342) which is good for them.  But where then does the December payment fall, employer 1 isn't liable neither is employer 2 so would it have been funded by the government?

Would you do an employment status update dated 23/12 to show unemployment?

Many thanks for your help.

Thank you Martin, we've done that so the stop dates are all okay.  It's the question around the December payment as surely it wouldn't fall to employer 1 or employer 2, as he was not employed by either on 31/12.
