Finances

In June 2010 the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government wrote to local authorities committing us to publishing items of spending over £500 by January 2011. The data we've published under 'Local Spending data' excludes:

  • all payments to individuals paid through payroll
  • payments to HM Revenue and Customs relating to Vat and payroll
  • all pension-related payments

We have included invoice and grant payments to individuals but have replaced personal data with the words 'Redacted personal data'.

Local Spending data

Background

  • The data published relates to payments made by the Lake District National Park Authority
  • The Authority uses an accounting system called SunSystems
  • The date used to identify payments is the date that the transaction was authorised for payment
  • The purchase categorisation used is from BVACOP  - Best Value Accounting Code of Practice
