Corporate report: BEIS annual report and accounts 2016 to 2017

Updated: Errors in the merging of records from BIS and DECC resulted in incorrect diversity data being published. This has now been corrected (page 81).

This report sets out the activities of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) over the period 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017.

It provides detailed information on:

  • performance
  • how we used our resources
  • our progress against supporting economic growth
  • our objectives

The resource accounts provide detailed accounting and expenditure information for the financial year 2016 to 2017.

Note: BEIS was created in July 2016 following the merger of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).
