Research England funding allocations from 2023 to 2024


Grant payment information for 2023 to 2024

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

Currently, 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.

Payment profiles

See our payment profiles for 2023 to 2024, which show how Research England’s allocated grants are paid to each individual provider across the academic year (August 2023 to July 2024).

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 produce these for Research England, do not have correct contact details for you.

To establish where remittance emails are being sent, and to ensure that UK SBS has the correct contact details, please contact

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

Adjustments to payments in March, April and May

March payments may be higher than initially published, and April to May payments lower. This is due to an adjustment process at the end of Research England’s financial year.

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