In the financial year 2018/19 BEIS was allocated £185.1m of EU Exit funding. Of this total allocation, £106.7m has been budgeted for programme and capital spend. £78.4m has been budgeted as administration spend, of which £57.3m has been budgeted for staff within BEIS. BEIS is keeping this under review over the course of the financial year. No Deal funding is aggregated as part of the Department’s overall spend and therefore cannot be reported separately.
