Note 1 £4m of savings against original IT spend forecast for Scottish Rate of Income Tax ( SRIT) implementation costs. Further £4m of savings against estimates for HMRC running costs associated with the Scottish income tax powers. £4m variance following the reclassification of Scottish Futures Trust expenditure and £1m variance in local government elections budget due to reprofiling of expenditure on stage four of the e-counting project with additional £2m in other minor variances.

Remaining £2m consists of other minor variances across a number of programmes within the portfolio.
