Payments over £250 made by the London Fire Brigade* as part of the government and Mayor of London's transparency agenda. As of November 2012 the threshold for expenditure changed from £500 to £250 at request of the Mayor.

The Local Government Transparency Code 2015 requires the data to indicate VAT for payments which cannot be recovered; there are no such payments for LFB as all VAT is recoverable.

The Transparency Code also requires a 'merchant category' to be added to payment details. LFB has 'Proclass' data and this has been added to published data (from January 2015). Please note that approximately 75 per cent of LFB vendors currently have a Proclass classification and this may result in a small number of payments not having a ‘merchant category’.

* The London Fire Commissioner is the fire and rescue authority for London and runs the London Fire Brigade (LFB).
