What we spend

This page provides our key financial information and information under the transparency agenda

Spending and budgets

Our Council Tax leaflets set out our annual spending and budgets.

Our financial and procurement procedures


The information required under the Transparency Code of Practice is listed here.

Invoice payments over £500

To ensure that we are open and transparent over the way in which we spend money, we have published online details of all invoices over £500.

The links below give details by month of the invoices for over £500 which have been paid during the current financial year and previous years.

The invoices highlight the wide range of activities and work delivered by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service - from fitting smoke alarms to buying and maintaining specialist vehicles and appliances.

If you have any queries, please email the finance team on financeacc@cheshirefire.gov.uk. We will respond to all questions as quickly as we can but some cases can involve detailed investigation and may take us up to the 20 working days maximum set out in our Freedom of Information policy.
