CURO Transatlantic Limited (formerly trading as WageDayAdvance and Juo Loans) (in Administration) – “CTL” Joint Administrators – Howard Smith and Ed Boyle

For anyone else on this payday loan journey with me. I have documented all of my communication and updates with Wage Day Advance. As it has been over a year of updates. I thought I would create a page dedicated to the payout due in May 2020.

Update

Update regarding dividend payments and the Customer Service Centre Summary: 14th July 2020

• The Joint Administrators declared and paid a dividend of 5.68p in the £ to all known unsecured creditors with an agreed claim in the Administration on 20 May 2020. 

• A proportion of the payments that we made were unsuccessful and bounced back to us due to out of date customer bank account details. 

• If you have not received your payment, please contact us to update your bank account details before 5pm on Monday 20 July 2020. 

• We will be making only one further payment attempt, and this will be made before the end of July 2020. If we do not have your updated bank account details before 5pm on Monday 20 July 2020, the Joint Administrators will not be able to process a further payment attempt to you. 

Provided your payment shows as unsuccessful in our records, if you do not update your bank account details with us before 5pm on Monday 20 July 2020, you may still be able to claim the amount you are owed from the Insolvency Services Account (see below). However, it is likely to be a number of months before the ISA is able to make such payments. 

• Shortly after the processing of our final payment attempt later this month, we will begin the process of winding down our Customer Service Centre operations and closing the Administration. 

Our Customer Service Centre will be closed from late August 2020, and we will not be able to answer any further customer queries after this time. 

Dividend payments 

On 20 May 2020 the Joint Administrators declared and paid a dividend of 5.68p in the £ to all known unsecured creditors with an agreed claim in the Administration. 

This payment was made electronically to more than 100,000 creditors. If customers had not updated their bank account details during the period of the Administration, the bank account details paid were those taken from CTL’s company records. 

A proportion of the payments that we made were unsuccessful and bounced back to us due to out of date bank account details. Please note that we have not received any interest from holding the funds that have returned to us, and that no profit has been made from holding these funds. 

Further payment attempts 

Since the start of June we have been undertaking a process to match unsuccessful payments to customers, and arrange for second payment attempts to be made to customers who provided updated bank account details. 

Due to the high level of engagement from customers, we have already been able to process one interim payment run, which was communicated to the relevant customers on 30 June 2020. 

We will be making one further payment attempt before the end of July 2020. This payment attempt will be made to those customers who have not received their dividend payments and have successfully updated their bank account details with us before 5pm on Monday 20 July 2020.

If you do not believe you have received your dividend payment from us, please contact customerservice.curo@kpmg.co.uk as soon as possible to provide alternative bank details. 

We will not be able to process any changes to details that we receive after 5pm on Monday 20 July 2020, and will not be able to process a further payment attempt if your details are not updated at that time. 

Unsuccessful dividend payments 

If you do not contact us to inform us that your dividend payment has been unsuccessful, you may still be able to claim the dividend payment at a later date, but not from the Administration. 

Following the conclusion of the final payment process, we will be sending any funds that we hold relating to unsuccessful dividend payments to the Insolvency Services Account (‘ISA’). This is a Government controlled bank account, and this process is in line with standard insolvency procedure. 

If the dividend payment made to you has not been successful, and this is reflected in our records of unsuccessful payments, you will be able to claim the amount directly from the ISA. We will provide an update of the process to claim funds on this website when this process is open. 

It is likely to be a number of months before the ISA can process payments to customers who had unsuccessful dividend payments and have not subsequently contacted us to receive a second payment attempt. 

If you do not believe that you have received your dividend payment, please contact customerservice.curo@kpmg.co.uk before 5pm on Monday 20 July 2020 to discuss this with our Customer Service team. 

Please also note that if you do not believe you have received your dividend payment, but this is not reflected in our record of unsuccessful payments, you will not be able to claim funds from the ISA, and the ISA will not enter into any discussions with you with regards to payment. 

Customer Service Centre 

Shortly after the processing of the final payment attempt, we will begin the process of winding down our operation of the Customer Service Centre and closing the Administration. 

Due to the recent UK outbreak of COVID-19, our Customer Service team has been working remotely, and the CURO customer service telephone lines have been suspended since 5pm on Friday 20th of March. These telephone lines will now be closed permanently. 

Following on from this, our Customer Service Centre will be closing permanently in late August 2020. After this point we will not be able to answer any customer queries by telephone, by email or otherwise.

Update from Administrators:

As you know, on 20 May 2020, the Joint Administrators declared and paid a first and final dividend to all unsecured creditors with an agreed claim in the Administration. Payments were made to 100,021 customers on that date, and the vast majority reached customer bank accounts on Friday 22 May 2020.

We have been notified by our payment provider that some payments have been returned where they did not successfully reach customer bank accounts.  It is inevitable that some payments are returned when making this volume of payments. 

Since 20 May 2020, we have received over a high volume of emails into our Customer Service inbox, the majority of which relate to customers’ payment enquiries. We are committed to responding to each of these emails as quickly, efficiently and accurately as possible, and investigating any queries put forward by customers regarding the receipt of their dividend payment. 

We are in the process of responding to the customers who have contacted us regarding their payment not reaching them and will continue to work through these queries as quickly as possible.

We will be making a second payment attempt to any customers for whom the initial dividend payment is returned to us, and who have contacted us to provide alternative bank details. We intend to make this second payment attempt as soon as possible, and in any event by the end of July. 

We would also note that this dividend is the first and final dividend and that no further dividends will be declared by the Administrators in relation to these claims. Anyone whose claim was admitted in the administration received notification of their dividend payment and remains entitled to receive that dividend, even if this first payment attempt was unsuccessful in reaching their bank account.

It should be noted that CTL in Administration will not earn any interest on funds that are returned to CTL.

Notice of declaration of final dividend

I now have been paid – Friday 22nd March 2020. So keep an eye on your bank account too for payment!

What amazing news that WageDayAdvance are to pay creditors within the next 7 days!! I have kept you all updated with any information that I have received. As well as the conversations that I have had with their PR team. As confirmed, they are due to payout in the next 7 days from today.

The full email provided below…


A first and final dividend of 5.68 pence in the pound is to be paid to unsecured creditors.
This means you are due a dividend of £98.14.
We have processed your dividend payment, and you should receive the funds into your bank account within 7 days of this email.

Dear Miss Ellis,

CURO Transatlantic Limited (formerly trading as WageDayAdvance and Juo Loans) (in Administration) – “CTL” Court number 1418 of 2019
Joint Administrators – Howard Smith and Ed Boyle

Notice of declaration of final dividend

Howard Smith and Ed Boyle were appointed Joint Administrators of CTL on 25 February 2019.

We previously contacted you to inform you that we had agreed your claim in the Administration at £1,727.76.

We are contacting you to inform you that a dividend of 5.68 p in the £ was declared on 20 May 2020 and is now being paid to creditors. This dividend was calculated from total funds available to be distributed of £7,232,445. We are notifying you of this as required by Rule 14.35 of the Insolvency (England and Wales) Rules 2016.

The dividend rate of 5.68 p in the £ means that, for example, a creditor with a claim of £1,000 will receive a dividend payment of £56.80, as unfortunately there is insufficient money to pay creditor claims in full.

The balance of funds held by CTL has been retained to pay the remaining costs of the administration process. There will be no further dividend paid to creditors.

Final Payout Update: Wednesday 13th April

I thought I would check in one more time with WDA this week. Good to hear that payments will be made this month. A PR representative told me that “Just to confirm there is no change to the position that it will be paid on or before the month end.”

WDA Payout Update: Friday 17th April

I wanted to share positive news with you al. After speaking to an official spokesperson today for the Administrators. Despite COV-19 disrupting many businesses right now. They have reassured me that there is no anticipated delay in paying dividends to us all.

As formerly communicated to creditors, the first and final dividend will be paid on or before 31st May 2020.

WDA – Claim Update: COVID-19

Due to the UK on lockdown, the Administrators have had to suspend their customer helpline number to protect their staff. However, you are able to still contact by email. Payouts are not expected until the end of May 2020. I have copied their announcement which is highlighted below in bold.

Unfortunately due to the recent UK outbreak of COVID-19, following the guidance from the UK government and in the interest of the health and well-being of both our staff and wider communities, we have had to take the decision to suspend the CURO customer service telephone lines from 5 pm on Friday 20th of March. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.

At this moment we are unable to provide a timescale as to when customer service telephone lines may be available again, as such, we would advise all customers who wish to contact us that the FAQ section of our website provides updates and answers to most common queries at www.KPMG.co.uk/curo. Alternatively, customers may contact our customer service team through email at customerservice.curo@kpmg.co.uk.

WDA – Claim Update: Dividend Info

A big thanks to Nat Daley in our community for sharing the latest update. Wage Day Advance confirmed that they will be paying out before 31 May 2020. However, what they have not revealed UNTIL NOW is that they estimate that the dividend will be between 4.5 and 5.2. pence in the pound.

Wage Day Advance Update

Information on how your claim has been estimated can be found in the Joint Administrators’ proposals, which are available to view here or by visiting www.kpmg.co.uk/curo.

If you did not submit your claim by this deadline, it is unlikely that your claim will be considered by the Joint Administrators and you may not receive a payment.

Please note that CTL will not be able to pay your claim in full, and it is expected that you will only receive a partial payment (low pence in the pound) against any valid claim you may have.
