Income and spending

Payments to suppliers

The following files show payments to suppliers made by the council that are over £500 in value, and all payments made using the Council's purchasing cards.

All invoices of £500 and over (inclusive of VAT) are included although the amount paid is shown net of VAT. This is the actual cost to the Council. All information is drawn from payment feeders into the Council's financial ledger. In some cases, invoices over £500 may cover a number of separate items, and therefore payments shown may be less than £500.

Details of all expenditure apart from benefit payments and employee pay have been published. Where there is any specific sensitive information, this has been redacted (i.e the individual payments are still listed but no personal details have been disclosed). Redaction applies to social service payments to adult and foster carers, and any other personal details of members of the public.

Further details of individual payments are available on request.
