Annual Return Information
The Parish Council produces an end-of-year financial statement for the Annual Parish meeting which is held in April or May. This shows the breakdown of expenditure and income.
The Annual Return is the formal accounting document for each financial year. It has to be checked by an internal auditor then filed with a government appointed external auditor. Parishioners have a right to inspect the Annual Return for a short period prescribed by the external auditor before it is filed.
