As part of its commitment to transparency, the Charity Commission publishes all expenditure over £25,000.

The majority of the commission’s expenditure, about 68%, is on staff costs (salaries and wages, National Insurance, pension contributions and so on). The remaining expenditure is:

  • 5% on office accommodation - the commission is based across four sites in Liverpool, Taunton, London and Newport; expenditure on office accommodation includes rent, business rates and utilities. The related invoices often exceed £25k and therefore these costs appear regularly on our transparency disclosures

  • 15% on information technology and information systems - this covers the cost of licences, hardware and software maintenance and support, voice and data networks and the website, amongst other things. Some of these regular charges exceed £25k and therefore appear on our transparency disclosures

  • 12% on general running costs, including training, travel, printing and postage and other office costs

Expenditure, in this instance, is all individual invoices, grant payments, expense payments or other such transactions that are over £25,000.

Expenditure on paybill is excluded from the scope of these disclosures.
