Your payment spreadsheet

Each payment summary we send you is accompanied by a payment spreadsheet (remittance advice), which sets out information about aspects of each payment. 

Note Surveyors: You’ll have a slightly different spreadsheet, view your Payment Spreadsheet for Surveyors.

Some columns or cells in the spreadsheet may be blank, depending on the type of distribution, payment model and work, and what information we have in our database.
