Important information for payments

Payments that are paid automatically will not be delayed by the holidays, but some payments may be made earlier than usual. An early payment is not an extra payment. It’s just your normal payment paid early. You will need to budget carefully so this payment lasts until your next payment is due.

Where payments are made early, they are paid as close as possible before your usual payment day to minimise disruption to your budgeting patterns.

For customers who receive:

If you are due to report, you must do so before you can be paid.
