2017 Party Donations and Loans Returns

Party returns of donations and loans for the 2017 calendar year, which were due to be filed with the Electoral Commission by 30 April 2018, are available for download and inspection as PDF files, below.

The table below provides a list of the parties that were required to file a return and a summary of their total donations and loans. More information about the categories of donations and loans can be found in each return. Care should be taken when aggregating values included in returns to reach a party’s total as donations (or contributions to them) may appear in more than one place in the return. Please note the annual returns include donations and loans over $30,000 already reported to the Commission during 2017.
