ESFA Payment dates is it 14 working days in follwing month?


HI can anyone advise the current working days within the month that payments are/should be made to Main Providers? I thought it was 14 working days so e.g. RO4 Nov submission would be paid on Monday 20th December? Just trying to work out annual schedule.


No one has replied to this post.


Hmmm, says ten working days here:

Payment timing – ESFA help centre (

But fourteen working days here...

[Withdrawn] ESFA Update further education: 8 May 2019 - GOV.UK (

I think it's the latter...

Thnanks Steve, I think it's 14 too and I was sure I had read an update to that effect but thought it was more recent than 2019.
