The reports show payments of £500 or more paid within the calendar month indicated, and include all payments to suppliers for goods or services (excluding schools) regardless of the source of funding. This means not all expenditure represents a direct cost to the council tax payer; some is funded from the rents paid by council tenants or from specific grants and contributions.
The reports show the original transaction and does not reflect any subsequent correction.
The data in the reports has been extracted from Portsmouth City Council’s financial accounting system, and also includes payments made via CHAPS (the electronic, bank to bank, payment system that guarantees same business day payment).
