Knowledge Base / Central Payment System Guidance


The Federation has developed a centralised payment system for all Apprenticeship completion certifications processed on the ACE system.


There are three options for paying through the payment system:


1. Pre-pay by credit card.


2. Pre-pay by BACs.


These options will allow you to bulk buy credits for certificates that will be added to a balance on the ACE system, and deducted when certificates are processed


3. One off payment (pay as you go (PAYG)– This option will allow you to use a credit/debit card to pay for the certificate when you submit the Apprenticeship certification claim for approval.


4. Credits cost £25 each and are exempt from VAT


You can find further information here in this ACE Central Payment Guide
