What counts as a donation?

Sums UP TO AND INCLUDING £50 are not classed as donations by the Electoral Commission and ARE NOT subject to permissibility and traceability checks.

Sums over £50 are classed as donations. All donation over £50 WILL BE subject to permissibility and traceability checks.

For the purposes of facilitating our campaigning by mitigating the unnecessary administrative burden associated with permissibility and traceability checks PLEASE KEEP YOUR DONATION TO LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO £50.

Aggregation of Donations

If Mr. John Smith donates £30 and then makes a subsequent donation of £21 then the election rules interpret Mr. John Smith as having made a donation of £51. Permissibility and traceability checks will have to be undertaken as the aggregated donation from Mr. John Smith is over the £50 threshold.

Anonymous Donations

!!Anonymous donations are actively discouraged!!

Anonymous donations are aggregated. Two or more anonymous donations are treated as a single entity so even though Person A has made an anonymous donation of £40 and Person B has made an anonymous donation of £20, the donations are treated as a single aggregate donation of £60.

Since it will be IMPOSSIBLE to carry out permissibility and traceability checks on anonymous donations then these donations will be returned to the person who transferred the donation, the financial institution used to transfer the donation and if neither of these can be identified the donation will be sent to the Electoral Commission who will pay the sum of money in to the Governments Consolidated Fund.

Donations Over £50

If donations over £50 are made by a permissible donor the following additional information must be included with the donation:

  • The donor’s name and address (as stated on the Electoral Register)
  • If the donor is a company, their registered company number

Donation Rules and Guidance

The Electoral Commission has laid down rules and guidance regarding crowd funded political campaigns. If you do decide to kindly donate then please read the following guidelines carefully before doing so.
