The reviewer, Professor Dieter Helm, was paid £500 per day, for 30 days work. Members of the advisory panel were not paid. The Department also reimbursed the travel costs of the reviewer and advisory panel members, which amount to £410. A small team in BEIS supported the reviewer in the conduct of the review, in particular by providing publicly available information.
