Payment information for HEIs

Grant payments from Research England to HEIs are made through UK Shared Business Services (UKSBS). As a transitional arrangement, payments attributable to Research England will pass through the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) accounts payable function, and credits to HEI accounts will therefore show as from “EPSRC”.

Remittance advices will be issued with each grant payment. If you have not received a remittance advice for the April grant payment, it could be because we do not have correct contact details for you. Please contact us at finance@uksbs.co.uk if this is the case.

Payment profiles for 2018-2019 are provided at the bottom of this page.

Grant payment amounts in April 2018 are slightly lower than normal, reflecting the slightly higher payments made by HEFCE in its final March 2018 payment run. These variances arise from an adjustment process made by HEFCE at the end of its financial year. The total grant paid to HEIs during the academic year 2017-18 is not affected by this adjustment.
