The Local government transparency code 2015 makes it mandatory for local authorities to publish expenditure data as follows:

  • expenditure exceeding £500
  • government procurement card transactions (no lower limit)
  • at least quarterly; and
  • no later than one month after the quarter to which the data and information is applicable

For each individual item of expenditure, the following information must be published:

  • date the expenditure was incurred
  • local authority department which incurred the expenditure
  • beneficiary
  • summary of the purpose of the expenditure
  • amount
  • Value Added Tax (VAT) that cannot be recovered and
  • merchant category 

Please note that we recover all VAT and only orders raised by order will show a summary of the expenditure incurred.

Publication of these lists forms part of the authority's commitment to be open and transparent with our residents.
