Referendum campaigner

There are rules campaigners must follow on campaign spending, donations and reporting in the run up to a referendum. We regulate those rules.

We register campaigners in a referendum and provide advice and guidance on the rules on spending and donations that campaigners must follow.

Our guidance is here to help campaigners comply with the rules. You do not have to follow this guidance, but if you do, you will normally be doing enough to comply with the law.
