Non-party campaigners: UK Parliamentary general elections

Regulated campaign activities

This section explains which of your campaign activities will be regulated under the law and count toward your spending limits. If you are required to report after the election, you will need to itemise your spending on these activities.

This section includes:

  • the activities that count as regulated campaign activities
  • how to assess whether an activity is regulated
  • the ‘purpose test’ and when an activity is ‘made available to the public’
  • the types of activities that are not regulated under the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000 (PPERA)
