Statement of accounts

Statement of accounts

As a District Council, we deal with a huge budget each year.

We handle the income we receive from:

  • grants
  • council tax
  • fees and charges

We also carefully manage the money we spend on:

  • delivering services
  • paying precepts to the Parish Councils, County Council and police and fire authorities

Each year we produce a statement of accounts. We hope that it helps to tell the story of how the money you paid became the services you received. It sets out an overview of what money has been spent on during the year and highlights specific issues regarding the Council’s financial position at 31 March.

You will see that this year’s statement refers to the previous financial year, this is because financial statement of accounts are always produced one year in arrears. The external auditor's annual report is also available. The external auditor Mazars LLP, were appointed on a 5 year term in 2018 and this will continue through until 2022-23.

If you have any queries about any of the information and reports on his page, please call us on 01636 655326.
