Research England funding allocations from 2022 to 2023


Grant payment information 2022 to 2023

Grant payments from Research England to higher education providers are made through UK Shared Business Services (UK SBS).

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 UK SBS, who circulate these on Research England’s behalf, do not have correct contact details for you. Please contact if this is the case, to establish where emails are being sent and to ensure that they have the correct contact details going forward.

Where a remittance advice has not been received, please contact to receive details of the payment made to you.

Payment profiles

See our payment profiles for 2022 to 2023, which show how Research England’s allocated grants are paid to each individual provider across the academic year (August 2022 to July 2023).

Payments in March and April 2023

March payments may be slightly higher than normal, and April payments slightly lower, as a result of an adjustment process made by Research England at the end of its financial year.

The total grant paid to providers during the academic year is not affected by this adjustment.
