Consistent with the Agreement on the establishment of the Register, we have taken a broad view and have sought to capture all activities carried out with the objective of directly or indirectly influencing the formulation of EU policy. Our estimate includes expenses (salaries, but also related operating costs such as office space, IT and telecommunications and travel costs) for personnel in and outside of Brussels to the extent they are involved in outreach to the EU institutions – even where this outreach is not focused on particular EU policies. Our estimate also includes costs relating to a broad universe of outreach and promotional activities (such as responding to Commission consultations, but also white papers, media activities, blogs etc), conferences, sponsorships and other events – again even where those activities were not directly focused on specific EU policies.
We have also reported all fees paid to consultancies and law firms for advocacy activities on our behalf, even where those entities have themselves reported those amounts. Finally, we have also included fees paid to trade associations whom we understand have not registered themselves.

We also note that our estimate encompasses activities undertaken by Microsoft and by Skype, which Microsoft acquired in October 2011 and which is now a new business division within Microsoft.
