We have a statutory obligation under the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act (PPERA) 2000 to maintain a series of registers.
PEF Online is our interactive registers database system.
You can use PEF Online for the following:
- to find information about registered political parties, regulated donees, registered campaigners in referendums and non-party campaigners (third parties)
- to download UK political party emblems
- to register a new party, change your registration details and file statutory returns
- to search donations, loans and campaign expenditure information
If you're new to online registration, read: PEF Online - getting started for political parties (PDF)
You can also download emblems of political parties and minor parties from the link below:
Please follow the link below to view all donations and borrowing to regulated donees that we publish monthly.
