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, 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, to establish where emails are being sent.

Payment profiles are provided at the bottom of this page.

Please note: As a result of an adjustment process made by Research England at the end of its financial year, March payments may be slightly higher than normal, and April payments slightly lower. The total grant paid to HEIs during the academic year is not affected by this adjustment.
