Financial Management

Section 31 (1) of the Public Services Reform (Scotland) 2010 Act requires public bodies to publish, as soon as is reasonably practical after the end of each financial year, a statement of any expenditure they have incurred during that financial year on or in connection with the following matters:

  • Public Relations
  • Overseas Travel
  • Hospitality and Entertainment
  • External Consultancy

In an effort to be as transparent as possible the Crofting Commission has undertaken to publish and update expenditure within these categories on a regular basis, details can be found below.

Transparency Data – electronic Purchasing Cards spend

With effect from July 2018 the Crofting Commission will also publish transaction data of its electronic Purchasing Card spend of £500 and over on a monthly (retrospective) basis in line with the Scottish Government commitment to do so. Details of this spend can be found below.

The Crofting Commission Annual Accounts can be found in our Annual Report.

The Framework document which been drawn up by the Scottish Government (SG) in consultation with the Crofting Commission, sets out the broad framework within which the Crofting Commission will operate and defines key roles and responsibilities which underpin the relationship between the Crofting Commission and the SG. A copy of the Framework document can be found at www.crofting.scotland.gov.uk/the-act-and-policy

Public Holiday Closure

We will be closed on Friday 3rd and Monday 6 July for a public holiday.

UPDATE: CORONAVIRUS
The Commission is now accepting new applications, but as all staff continue to work from home and the office remains closed, these will be processed more slowly than usual. Any applications that relate to statutory deadlines, or which concern a Crofting Register form to notify the Commission that an event has taken place, will be given priority over other applications.

Where applications require a site visit, it will not be possible for any site visit to be carried out until the government eases the current restrictions on movement.Where any application involves a hearing, no hearings will take place until the current restrictions on movement are eased and the government has advised that public meetings (with appropriate physical distancing) can take place.

Approved Applications:

If you are a crofter who has had an application approved by the Commission within the last 3 months
Please read this important information regarding effecting Commission regulatory decisions.

You can continue to contact us by email info@crofting.gov.scot and although we are now in a position to deal with phone calls to our reception line, few staff have access to work phones to make return calls and therefore the service will be limited. We would therefore ask that you continue to contact us via email. You can of course continue to use the mobile numbers on the Contact Us page of this website to speak with us.

The Commission understands that this is a difficult time for all concerned, but we wish to reassure crofters and their agents that we will continue to work to restore normal levels of service. It is unlikely that this can be fully restored until the government permits offices to reopen and for various restrictions on movements and meetings to be eased.
20 May 2020.
