Leave to pay

Registered referendum campaigners must not, without leave from the Commission, pay an invoice that has not been received by them from the supplier within 30 days of the poll. Any payment must then be made by the campaigner within 60 days of the poll.

We can grant leave to pay if we are satisfied that it is appropriate to do so. In deciding whether to grant leave we consider the facts of each case, and will generally grant leave unless by doing so there will be any loss of transparency, or unreasonable detriment to the supplier.
