BACS statements

We have received a number of calls from our providers who have not received their BACS remittance advice for the week ending 17 September. We can confirm that the BACS payments themselves haven’t been delayed. We apologise for any inconvenience and will provide you with an update when we have identified the cause of the problem.

When casework is processed

We process applications and bills as quickly as we can - the vast majority within our published targets.

To help you know when to contact us with queries, the table below shows the oldest date of receipt of bills currently being worked on in each category. We aim to update this each week.

Any work received earlier than the date shown will already have been processed. Work received later than the date shown may not have been dealt with.

When we pay you

Once processing is complete and your bill is ready for payment, it takes up to eight working days for the money to reach your account if you are paid by BACS.

Please wait until this time has elapsed before contacting our Customer Service Team – this will help us to keep processing all your work more quickly.

Sometimes there are variations in processing times between our teams and we may be able to process your work quicker than the oldest date shown.
