There are rules on which donations and loans political parties in Great Britain and Northern Ireland can accept and how they must be recorded and reported. This page contains guidance on how to comply with the rules if you are a political party in Northern Ireland, and all the forms you need for reporting.

The Northern Ireland (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act became law on 13 March 2014. The Act changes the rules on confidentiality of donations and loans to Northern Ireland political parties and regulated donees. The current rules will apply until secondary legislation is passed. Our existing guidance for political parties and regulated donees explain these rules. If you would like more information on the changes to the rules, please contact us on 0333 103 1928 or email us.

You can also find user guides for managing your party using our online database PEF Online at the bottom of this page.

Y Diweddaraf

  • Changes to the confidentiality rules on donations and loans to Northern Ireland political parties from 1 July 2017

    03-07-2017

    The UK Government announced on 3 July that it will bring forward legislation to allow the Electoral Commission to publish details of some donations and loans made to Northern Ireland parties. It is currently unlawful for the Electoral Commission to disclose any information reported to us about donations and loans made to Northern Ireland parties, under the Political Parties Elections and Referendums Act 2000 (PPERA).

    Once this legislation is passed, details of donations received and loans entered into by parties from 1 July 2017 and reported to the Electoral Commission will be published on our website. We expect the first publication of this information to be autumn 2017.

    We will publish a factsheet after the draft legislation is published and publish amended guidance once the law has changed. You should check our website regularly to make sure you are aware of when the new rules come into force and for further updates.

    For further advice and information please contact us at pef@electoralcommission.org.uk.
