Academies payments information: remittance advice notes

Information to help academies understand remittance advice notes which accompany funding payments.



This guide provides information on each of the most frequently used transaction descriptions on the monthly remittance advice notes issued to academies. This will help academies understand the main components of their monthly payments.

The guide includes information on pre-16 funding, 16 to 19 funding, high needs and other grants such as pupil premium, PE and sports grant, and universal infant free school meals (UIFSM). It also provides links to further information.

Further information is available in revenue funding: payments to academies.
