Why are there entries of less than £500?

This could be because:

  • invoices are sometimes split between different departments within the council, but the total equals more than £500
  • invoices may cover more than one category of spending, but the total equals more than £500
  • amounts shown do not include VAT.

Removal of personal or sensitive data

If we make payments to individuals, we remove their personal details to comply with the Data Protection Act. In these cases, details of the payment are included but the supplier column will show ‘Redacted personal data’.

There will also be rare occasions when we need to protect the name of an individual supplier, and in these cases their name will be replaced by the words ‘Redacted commercial data’.
