This site consists of multiple financial transparency projects. The projects can be used separately but they also interact with one another. The most powerful example of this integration is the search on company, party or charity name which provides results from taxation, political donations, tenders, pecuniary interests and charities data. However, it is much easier to search each dataset on its own if you know which dataset you want to search. You can use that using the search box below or click on the headings to find out the scope, intention and options for each project.

Move between the projects here or by using the main menu on each page. Mouse over the page option icons to display details.
