How to pay your invoice

We'll send you an invoice once we've processed your order. We prefer you to pay via BACS transfer as it's the most efficient and secure method.

When we send invoices

For general qualifications, we send invoices and credit notes:

  • daily for exam entries
  • weekly for exam amendments.

We send invoices and credit notes weekly for:

  • teacher support
  • on demand qualifications
  • Continuing Professional Development.

Other invoices and credit notes are issued periodically after completion of a service. For example, post-results invoices are issued following completion of all requests for an exam series.

We can also supply candidate number details on request.

Invoices and credits for other services will include any other details relevant to the charge, such as the date and event title for a course, or the full details of the service provided.

We keep a record of all invoices and credits for seven years.
