About our updates

We want to be transparent about how we spend your money. In this section we publish monthly updates detailing every amount more than £500 (excluding VAT) paid to suppliers.

The payment schedules include:

  • the name of the supplier
  • the council service making the payment
  • all individual purchases of goods
  • all payments we make to contractors carrying out work on our behalf
  • any other spend we incur in carrying out our business
  • invoice date and invoice number.

What we publish reflects the latest Government guidelines on public sector transparency. And we regularly review the way we classify expenditure to ensure the process is as accurate as possible.
