We compute the next-to-leading-order (NLO) QCD corrections to the Higgs pT distribution in Higgs production in association with a jet via gluon fusion at the LHC, with exact dependence on the mass of the quark circulating in the heavy-quark loops. The NLO corrections are presented including the top-quark mass, and for the first time, the bottom-quark mass as well. Further, besides the on-shell mass scheme, we consider for the first time a running mass renormalisation scheme. The computation is based on amplitudes which are valid for arbitrary heavy-quark masses.
