Conservative Party co-treasurer Peter Cruddas offered access to the prime minister and chancellor for £250,000, the Sunday Times has alleged.
It has footage of him apparently making the offer to undercover reporters.
London-based Mr Cruddas was appointed Tory co-treasurer in June 2011 and is the founder of online trading company Currency Management Consultants Ltd.
The Conservative Party said it would investigate but pointed out no donation had actually been accepted.
In the footage, Mr Cruddas is heard discussing what access different size donations would get.
“Two hundred grand to 250 is Premier League… what you would get is, when we talk about your donations the first thing we want to do is get you at the Cameron/Osborne dinners,” he says.
