Non-party campaigners: UK Parliamentary general elections

Targeted spending

Under the law, there are restrictions on how much registered non-party campaigners can spend in support of one particular political party or its candidates during a UK Parliamentary general election (UKPGE) regulated period. This is called ‘targeted spending’.

This section provides guidance on:

  • what spending counts as targeted spending 
  • how much you can spend on targeted spending
  • authorising and withdrawing authorisation for targeted spending
  • reporting targeted spending
