IATA announced a minor change to the financial criteria applying to UK-accredited agents. From 1 January 2024, agents will no longer be able to settle ticket payments every ten days. By default, agents on a ten-day remittance frequency will be moved to settlement four times per month. However, agents may be able to move to a remittance frequency of every two weeks by either satisfying the financial tests or providing security.

All other financial tests remain the same:

  • Agents’ accounts will be evaluated based on four financial ratios.
  • Accounts must pass all four tests to pass the financial assessment. If any of the tests are failed, financial security is likely to be required.
