Payments over £250 made by the London Fire Brigade* as part of the government and Mayor of London's transparency agenda.

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 is added to published data. Please note that most of LFB suppliers and contractors currently have a Proclass classification but a small number of payments may not have a ‘merchant category’.

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