In June 2010 the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government wrote to all councils asking them to publish items of spend over £500.

Bath and North East Somerset Council publishes details of expenditure over £500 in line with this request, and in the interests of openess and transparency in public spending.

This Council will publish data on a montly basis following the closure of accounts for the previous month.

What is included

  The reports include the following information:

  • Body Name
  • Service Area Categorisation
  • Service Area Code
  • Expenses Type
  • Account Code
  • Date
  • Transaction Number
  • Amount
  • Supplier Name


The amounts shown exclude VAT.

Where payments under £500 appear in a report, this is either because once the VAT element is included the total is more than £500, or because an invoice for more than £500 has been broken down across different areas of expenditure.


What is not included

There are some items of expenditure that are excluded from the reports. These are:

  • Payments of less than £500
  • Refunds
  • Payments relating to employee remuneration

Where a payment relates to a private individual (for example a a foster parent), the individual’s name has been replaced with the words ‘redacted’ in line with the Council’s obligations under the Data Protection Act 1998.


Format of information

The information is published in two formats.

PDF format – this is the easiest format to read the data in and is printer friendly.

CSV format – a machine readable spreasheet which enables easier reuse and analysis.


Reuse of information

This information is available for reuse in line with the Open Government Licence for Public Sector Information.

Queries about the information within the reports should be directed to the Payments Service. Email:
