I renewed my MLR registration a week ago and opted to pay by BACS. The application is showing as pending. My bank details are on my registration. No money has been debited from my bank account. I have checked on the "gov.uk mlr fees" to ascertain how to pay but I find it confusing. At one point it tells me that I need my 14 digit reference number but mine has15. At another point it refers to my 8 digit payment number but I do not have one.
The level of the fee is scandalously high. I dread my application being rejected and having to complete a new registration with the cost of the additionasl "joining fee".
When I look at my registration on the Government Gateway it says that I must pay within 28 days. Time is still on my side but that situation will not last for ever.
Any thoughts or suggestions pleas?
