Form IPA UAT Testing and XBRL Migration

The Bank announced in Statistical Notice 2023/12 the delayed migration of Form IPA to XBRL and the need for a further UAT window. Please be advised that the final opportunity to submit Form IPA in the BEEDS UAT environment will be from 12 February to 08 March 2024 inclusive. 

New Form IPA is now expected to commence in Spring 2024, therefore this will be the final UAT window for Form IPA reporters to utilise before the new collection template goes live. 

You do not need to request access, the relevant accounts and returns will be created for ALL Form IPA reporters.

For any Form IPA queries, please contact
