Basildon Council is required to publish details of all payments to suppliers over £500 from January 2011 onwards.

Published under the 'Local Government Transparency Code 2015' requirements.

The following reports list individual invoices paid by Basildon Council with a value of over £500 (excluding VAT) each month. This allows residents to see the money that the Council spends with different suppliers, but excludes payments made to individuals such as Council Tax refunds and benefit payments.

When viewing payments to suppliers over £500 information

The following points should be taken into consideration when viewing payments to suppliers over £500 information:

  • The information is provided for invoices paid in the reporting period, which is not necessarily when the goods or services were received.
  • The information is expenditure only and does not reflect any income in relation to the expenditure. For example there may be external funding or the expenditure generates income e.g. through the sale of tickets etc.

Please note that it is likely that the provision of this data will be delayed while the council is focused on its response to the covid-19 pandemic and due to technical difficulties in compiling the data remotely.

Payments to suppliers over £500 information is published in the following downloadable spreadsheets which can be read using Microsoft Excel and OpenOffice.

If you would like to know more specific information about the payments contained in the above spreadsheets, please Submit a Freedom of Information request online to request more details.
