Championship clubs are due to be paid £26,500 plus VAT, League One clubs £2,700 plus VAT and League Two clubs £1,350 plus VAT.
The next payments to clubs are at the end of season and will be determined by league position but there is continuing uncertainty over when and how the curent campaign will end.
