Transparency data: BEIS tax arrangements for off-payroll appointees, April 2016 to March 2017

The data shows details on:

  • number of off-payroll engagements for those earning more than £220 per day and lasting more than 6 months duration as at 31 March 2017
  • new engagements or those that reached 6 months duration between 1 April 2016 and 31 March 2017
  • engagements of board members, and/or senior officials with significant financial responsibility during that period
  • number of engagements for whom assurance as to their tax obligations has been sought
  • number who have successfully provided assurance
  • action taken against those who have not successfully provided assurance


In July 2016 the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) merged to form the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). This is the first return for the new department (combining both ex-BIS and ex-DECC) and is not directly comparable to previous returns.

Transparency data: BEIS Government Major Projects Portfolio data, 2017

Updated: Update to cost narrative to clarify a difference in calculation methodology between IPA reporting and BEIS annual report and accounts.

Each government department has published detailed information about projects on the Government Major Projects Portfolio (GMPP). This includes a Delivery Confidence Assessment rating, financial information (whole life cost, annual budget and forecast spend), project schedule and project narrative.

The data reflects the status of the GMPP at 30 September 2016 and is published in support of the 2017 Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) annual report.
