My fee was taken a month ago and I have not got any letter yet regarding my application acknowledgement ( date?)

Is that ok? or should I contact Home Office?

Does it mean they have taken my application according the date of submission?
If they have already debited the money then you should be fine and no need to contact HO. You should receive your acknowledgement in next few days i guess
