Systems are in place for maintaining and recording all transactions and payments are approved by the Council under the terms of the Council’s Financial Regulations. The Council’s Financial Year is April 01 to March 31 – financial planning each year commences mid-way through that period.

Please note that the figures in some documents listed above (those marked ‘unaudited’) are based upon the final out-turn figures for a particular financial year, but require submission to and approval by, the external auditor.
