If you’re sending more than one form by email, please use a separate email for each form.

What to use this form for

Use this form if you:

  • think your ES payment is wrong
  • need to send RPA further evidence/information about a payment query you have already raised
  • disagree with a letter you have received about your ES agreement
  • disagree with a decision RPA has made in relation to your ES Agreement

Do not use this form to chase a query form you have already submitted

How to fill in this form

Read the notes on the form – they explain what to do and how to fill in the form.

After you’ve submitted the form

You’ll receive a response after your query has been looked into fully:

  • if we find that we do not need to take any further action we’ll explain why
  • if we need to take further action we’ll confirm what we’ve done and the effect this has had on your agreement.

If you have another query that you have not already told RPA about, fill in and submit a new query form.
