Government requires Fire Authorities to publish spend transactions that exceed £500 excluding VAT. However in order to increase the transparency of its spending the Authority has chosen to publish all transactions in excess of £250 excluding VAT.
Invoices may relate to more than one budget heading and therefore may be split across multiple lines in the published document. Key terms are identified in the glossary below to assist users of the report.
The majority of the Authority’s spend allows for the recovery of VAT, we have not shown separately the very small number of transactions where this is not possible.
Authorities are also required to publish details of grants made to voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations. Where these transactions occur additional columns will be added to the right identifying additional details in line with the code.
Monthly spend reports are published in Adobe PDF and CSV formats.
Past years’ data has been compressed into ZIP files to allow entire years to be downloaded with a single link.
