Frequently Asked Questions


What should I do if I forget my password?  

If you forget your password please contact your Client Manager or Client Executive who will arrange for it to be reset. Shortly after launch we will introduce an automated process, allowing password reset 24/7.


Can we have multiple users for the same facility?
Yes, our system gives you control to set passwords and permissions and restrict access to specific screens/information if required. See How to set up a staff passcode


When can I access the new CloseNet?
You will be able to access the new system from 2.30pm on Tuesday 4 May. Please contact your client manager or client executive if you have any concerns about payments over this period.


How can I request a CHAPS or BACS payment? 
Requesting a payment is as simple as before, you are in control of how much you wish to take and the method of payment. The system will default to the maximum amount available and CHAPS. You can change this simply by using the drop down box. See How to request a payment


How can I access historic statements and cash reports not held on the new CloseNet system?
You will be able to access this information from our Legacy CloseNet which will be available for a period 6 months. The URL for this will be provided when we go live with the new system, and you will use the user name and password for the old system.


How do I upload my invoices and credit notes? 
The new CloseNet allows you to bulk upload your invoices using a CSV file. If you have previously uploaded your invoices manually and would like to do it by CSV file please speak to your client manager or client executive. See How to upload invoices manually and How to upload invoices via CVS file for further information.


What has changed on my availability screen? And what is the current account and deductions figures on my availability page?
The calculation for available funds has not changed, however, the layout and some of the terminology has. For example, an amount under Borrowing Base, is the amount that you can borrow, such as your funding approved balance multiplied by your prepayment percentage. See How to view availability



Can I access the new CloseNet on my mobile phone or tablet?
For the best experience, we recommend accessing the new CloseNet on a desktop. Please note, some devices are not compatible with the current version of the system and users may have limited access to some or all features when using a mobile phone or tablet.
