Finance

Our financial year runs from 1 April to 31 March. We agree an annual budget in January each year and also decide how much the annual Precept* should be set at. We submit our annual accounts in the form of an Annual Return to an external auditor.

The internal audit for the year ending 31 March 2018has been completed.  The Annual Return has been sent to the External Auditor, PKF Littlejohn LLP and has been returned with the certified Annual Return.  Key financial documents relating to the year ended 31 March 2021 can be found below:
