We will review the application to check the correct information and documents have been provided so it can be assessed.
We will contact the applicant if more information is required. If the information is not submitted in a timely manner or there is critical information missing, the application may be returned. It can then be resubmitted when you have all of the required information.
Once your application is accepted, an invoice will be forwarded to the nominated payee for payment.
When payment is made, assessment of your application will start.
