Following a successful pilot, the Intellectual Property Office has been granted approval to agree their annual pay remit through a system called paybill control. They are removed from the Civil Service pay remit guidance process and instead submit their requested paybill control total to HMT each year for approval.

The Intellectual Property Office are finalising their pay award for 2020/21 and will communicate the settlement to staff.
