Expenditure over £500

We publish quarterly reports of our expenditure over £500, in the interests of openness and transparency in public spending.

Our expenditure reports are available in CSV format. You can open them in Microsoft Excel and other spreadsheet programs.

Select a topic below to find out more about the information we provide in our expenditure reports.

What we include in the reports

Our expenditure reports include the following information:

  • Body Name
  • Service Area Categorisation
  • Service Area Code
  • Expenses Type
  • Account Code
  • Date
  • Transaction Number
  • Amount
  • Supplier Name

The amounts shown exclude VAT.

Where payments under £500 appear in a report, this is either because:

  • once the VAT element is included, the total is more than £500
  • an invoice for more than £500 has been broken down across different areas of expenditure

Expenditure we do not include in the reports

We do not include some items of expenditure in our reports. These are:

  • Payments of less than £500
  • Refunds
  • Payments relating to employee remuneration

Where a payment relates to a private individual (for example, a foster parent), we have replaced the individual’s name with the words ‘redacted’, in line with our obligations under the Data Protection Act 2018.

Reusing our information

You can reuse the information we publish in line with the Open Government Licence for Public Sector Information
