The recent quarterly expenses for The Pensions Regulator's Chair and board members includes all costs incurred for travel, accommodation and meals, etc as well as any hospitality given to others or received, and are in line with our expenses policies.
How expenses are incurred
Expenses are incurred by our board members in two ways:
- either individuals spend their own money whilst on business on behalf of the regulator and then claim it back (see staff and board / panel expenses policies in our publication scheme)
- the business makes bookings, particularly for travel and accommodation that need to be booked in advance, is invoiced for the cost
So travel / expenses bookings made in advance will be published for the quarter in which they were processed / paid, and therefore may not necessarily appear alongside other expenses (claimed back in arrears) for the same trip.
