Important note about the CSV files

We have published the information in CSV format so that it can be easily read in a variety of applications. However the CSV format uses a standard column width and not all entries may be completely visible. To view all the data, you'll need to expand the columns. You can do this by selecting all the cells in the file (the grey box beside column A and above row 1), and then clicking on Format/Column/AutoFitSelection.

All amounts are net of VAT unless stated otherwise.
