Expenditure over £25,000

From 31 October 2010 we are required to publish information on payments made by the Trust over £25,000. In some cases the payments shown are less than £25,000. This is because we have either split the payment for accounting purposes or have reclaimed VAT and shown the net amount. This is in accordance with HM Treasury guidance.
