Payment Reference

  • Answer:

    You can continue to use the payment reference that you currently use to make your payment as we aren’t changing this process. What we’re changing is that the successful MCR submission notification sent to your MCR Data Centre Mailbox, will contain the payment reference we currently hold based on what you have used previously. We recommend that this is used to ensure we can reconcile the payment correctly. Some employers use their establishment number however this varies, all we ask is that you provide one payment per submission and keep this reference consistent and unique per employer.

  • Answer:

    The payment reference shouldn’t change between months. We’ll provide you with the one we currently hold for the employer.

    The notification is to be used as a reminder for the payment reference we’re expecting to be used, based on what has previously been provided.

  • Answer:

    The payment reference for each school should be unique to that school or MAT and be the same every month. This is to ensure we can reconcile your MCR submission to the payment made. We receive a significant amount of payments each month that must be reconciled using this reference and following this process will ensure we can do this as efficiently as possible without having to contact you for missing payments or submissions.
