Please note:

We are aware of an issue regarding the increase in administered arrears from Q3 2016 and we are investigating, along with the FCA, the cause and possible solutions. We found there was an issue in our firm reporting data for administered arrears where the category of ‘other’ administered loans, which should not have been reported to us, was being included. This inflated the arrears figures published. We have since requested a resubmission of reports and as a result we are expecting to restate the arrears figures in the forthcoming publications.
