Budgets and expenditure

The Commissioner reports expenditure to the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body every month. The "Financial Summary Report" shows the breakdown of the Commissioner's budget and expenditure to date by budget line e.g.

  • staff salary costs and expenses
  • the Commissioner's travel and expenses
  • property maintenance costs
  • office running costs
  • professional fees
  • court costs and
  • capital expenditure.

Financial Summary Report

The report shows how much has been spent to date on each of these, and what, if any, variance this represents on the agreed budget.

The Commissioner's financial year runs from 1 April to 31 March. Each report shows the cumulative expenditure in the financial year to date. The final expenditure report, for March, shows the total expenditure for the year compared to the approved budget.
