Clearance cases since 2005

FOI reference - FOI-3681
Date - 13 March 2019


I am looking for information regarding how many clearance applications The Pensions Regulator has received each year since 2005. Please could you provide me with this information?


I can confirm that we hold the information you have requested. 

Information we are able to supply

Please find a summary below of the number of clearance cases The Pensions Regulator (TPR) has opened each year since 2005. Please be aware that these figures include draft clearance applications (some of which were exploratory in nature) which were subsequently withdrawn. Because of the way we hold this data we are unable to easily distinguish signed formal clearance applications from draft ones. In light of this the numbers offered below do not correlate with the number of clearances TPR has formally granted or refused.
