The Bank of England Electronic Data Submission (BEEDS) portal is an online application that manages data submissions from firms.

Data submission

The Bank of England Electronic Data Submission (BEEDS) portal is an online application that manages formal regulatory and statistical data submissions between PRA-authorised firms and the Bank of England. The portal enables firms to complete and submit all data submissions online. Firms can also view the information held about them by the Bank of England and keep it up to date.

The following guide explains the processes to submit data, manage users and update firm details. The guide is structured in a way that presents processes followed in the same way by all collections first. Where a collection has additional processes or information, these can be found in the Appendices. Please ensure you read the full guide and your relevant appendix before using the system.
