Under the Scottish Independence Referendum Act, registered campaigners must complete pre-poll reports setting out what donations and loans they have received over £7,500 between commencement of the Act (18 December 2013) and 5 September 2014.
This fourth pre-poll report covers the period from 22 August 2014 to 5 September 2014. Any campaigner that registered after the deadline for the first pre-poll report (3 July) must report any reportable donations or loans dating back to 18 December 2013.
There were two registered campaigners with reportable donations.
- Yes Scotland Limited (designated lead campaigner) - £120,000
- Let’s Stay Together - £10,000
