Finance

The Parish Council's financial year is from 1st April to 31st March. It sets a Budget at the January Parish Council meeting for the following financial year, and this is used to determine and set the Parish Precept.

The accounts are auditted both internally and externally.  The Internal Audit is conducted by a suitably qualified person in April on the full years accounts who has no other business with the Parish Council. The External Audit is conducted by Grant Thornton UK LLP, who have been appointed by the Audit Commission to examine the Accounts and Annual Return. The Parish Council is required to report on its activities during the preceeding year by preparing and submitting the Annual Return. It is required to prepare a set of accounts and report on any significant differences from one year to the next.
