ESFA real-time FAQ

28 November 2017

The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) has received a number of questions about its Land and Buildings Collection Tool (LBCT), and to help you with this and any other question/s you may have, ESFA is hosting an online real-time question and answer (Q&A) forum. Through the forum, you will also be able to see the answers to other people’s questions. You can request access to the forum by emailing

The forum above is in addition to ESFA’s weekly Skype conferencing Q&A sessions from 4pm to 5pm every Thursday to answer your questions about the accounts return and any residual questions about the LBCT return.
