Research England funding allocations from 2021 to 2022


Payment information 2021 to 2022

Grant payments from Research England to higher education providers 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 providers’ accounts will therefore show as from “EPSRC”.

Remittance advices

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 if this is the case, to establish where emails are being sent.

See our payment profiles for 2021 to 2022, which show how Research England’s allocated grants are paid to each individual provider across the year.

March and April payments

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 providers during the academic year is not affected by this adjustment.
