To help Suppliers we have provided the following useful Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).

What is the process for lodging Credit Cover or additional Credit Cover?

WP42 – Supplier CfD Credit Cover provides details on the process for lodging Credit Cover including the Letter of Credit templates (p21-25) and the approved bank account details for cash Credit Cover (p6).

In order for Credit Cover to be considered;

  • Cash amount must have been received in the relevant bank account;
  • Valid Letter of Credit received electronically; and
  • Received by 5:00pm on 29 March 2024

PLEASE NOTE: The bank account details and Letter of Credit templates are different to those used for CM Credit Cover.

How do I calculate my CfD Credit Cover?

The minimum Credit Cover requirement is a Supplier’s metered volumes for 21 days reference period multiplied by the Interim Levy Rate.

To help, we will first calculate your Credit Cover amount on 10 April 2024 and this will use the reference period as follows:

  • 1 March 2024 to 22 March 2024

G5 – Supplier CfD Credit Cover provides further details and an example to illustrate how to calculate your Credit Cover.
