Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Payments/Income

Monthly financial statements

For a more up-to-date picture of Council finances, there is always an opportunity to view these at each Council meeting, on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. The previous month’s actual Parish Council spend can be seen on the minutes of each Full Council meeting (Internal Audit Accounts & Audit Regulations 2003 reg 2) with the forecast of the following months payments also (LGA 1972 s150 (5)).

How the finances are monitored

The accounts are audited by the Council’s Internal Auditor, and then by a government-appointed external auditor. In addition, the cashbook, invoices and monthly bank reconciliations prepared by the Clerk are checked by a Councillor each month, and the bank reconciliations are presented to the Council at every meeting.
