Her Majesty's Treasury (HM Treasury), sometimes referred to as the Exchequer, or more informally the Treasury, is the British government department responsible for developing and executing the government's public finance policy and economic policy. The Treasury maintains the Online System for Central Accounting and Reporting (OSCAR), the replacement for the Combined Online Information System (COINS), which itemises departmental spending under thousands of category headings,[4] and from which the Whole of Government Accounts (WGA) annual financial statements are produced.

The leading pronoun in the department's name varies depending upon the sex of the reigning monarch. In Casino Royale (2006), Vesper Lynd is a HM Treasury liaison who's assigned to make sure Bond properly manages the funds provided by MI6 for the high-stakes poker game at the Casino Royale.
