Guidance for regulated individuals
Members of registered parties and holders of relevant elective office must follow certain rules set out in legislation. On this page you will find guidance to help you comply with the rules. You do not have to follow this guidance, but if you do, you will normally be doing enough to comply with the law.

As well as our guidance, we are happy to answer questions and give advice. We are here to help, so please get in touch.

Holders of elective office and members of registered political parties
You must check that all donations and loans received that are worth more than £500 are from a permissible source. If you receive any impermissible donations worth more than £500, you must report them to us. Please report to us all donations and loans that are worth more than £1,500.
We provide different forms and guidance for regulated donees depending on whether they are based in Great Britain and Northern Ireland:
