The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) publishes the core departmental advertising and publicity costs in the BIS Annual Report and Accounts. The costs recorded in each of the last four annual reports are as follows:

2013/14: £8,774,000

2012/13: £1,449,000

2011/12: £2,402,000

2010/11: £587,000

The annual report for 2014/15 is due to be published later this year.

The spend in 2013/14 was principally due to the launch of the first wave of advertising for the Business is GREAT campaign, which has successfully highlighted Government support available to businesses, assisting many to find the help they need to grow.
