Understanding Settlement Reports: a guide for BSC Parties
For any Settlement Date and Settlement Run Type carried out in accordance with the Settlement Calendar, the Settlement Administration Agent (SAA) publishes Settlement Reports (known as SAA-I014 reports) to relevant industry parties. Whilst all Settlement Reports are built using the same data, there are slightly differing sub-flows of the SAA-I014 depending on the primary recipient.
Why are there file sequence numbers missing for my SAA-I014 reports?
The SAA-I014 files are released daily to customers and a sequence number is assigned to each file. Some customers have been in contact with us regarding missing file sequence numbers, since the go-live of the new Settlement Administration Agent (SAA) service on Elexon Kinnect, our cloud platform.
Why is my FAA Daily Advice Note showing a different total to my SAA data?
Our new Settlement Administration Agent (SAA) went live on our Kinnect Platform in June 2023. Since then, a small number of customers have asked why rounded numbers are used for trading charges invoiced by the Funds Administration Agent, (FAA) compared with figures that are reported by the SAA reports.
Build up to go live of new Settlement Administration Agent
As part of our Elexon Kinnect programme we have been building a new Settlement Solution which replaces services of the Settlement Administration Agent (SAA) on our new cloud platform.
The Issue 107 Workgroup are seeking views from Trading Parties on its two preferred invoicing options.
