5. Does your charity spend more than £5,000 a quarter on lobbying?

Yes

If your charity spends more than £5,000 on lobbying - based on a good faith estimate of lobbying spend (including staff salaries) you may be registrable.

No

The register includes a threshold that exempts charities that spend relatively little on lobbying. The suggested threshold is £5,000 per quarter.
