Mine was royal mail. It start with two letter and then nine number and the GB. I believe the two Letter will be the place where your passport was issued.

following this with interest as I applied in Feb, got a letter saying I forgot to include payment slip (although im sure I did, I don't have it at home and I filled one in!)
sent it off and it arrived 27/02/15,well within their 14 day time limit to send, but no payment has been taken!

I've never been so eager to see my bank balance drop so drastically before ever in my life! :mrgreen:

From looking at past timeline threads (especially the February 2015 one), it seems as though payment is usually taken around 4 - 6 working days after receipt of the forms. The acknowledgement letter is usually dated the day the bank balance drop as well. Can't wait! Eeeek. :lol:

My husbands fee was taken 3 days after they received the application and today we got the acknowledgement email. So they are quick :-)
