Annual Accounts Open or Close
We deal with a huge budget each year. We handle the income we receive from grants, Council Tax, fees and charges and carefully manage the money we spend on delivering services and paying precepts to the parish councils, county council and Police/Fire authorities.
The Statement of Accounts is an annual publication that sets out exactly what we spent. This publication is designed to fit in with the latest regulations and guidance on the production of accounts for local authorities. The Annual Governance Statement is summarised in the Statement of Accounts each year. This is presented to the Audit Committee each June.
The Summary of Accounts provides brief summaries of the accounting statements included in the Statement of Accounts and in addition a review of our performance.

We are committed to good financial management and the ongoing review and improvement of our financial processes and services. We have also introduced a Money Laundering policy (54kb) that applies to all our employees and aims to maintain high standards of conduct, by reducing the risk of criminal activity through money laundering.
