Burton Green Parish Council Accounts
The administration of the Parish Council accounts is governed by statute and the Parish Council’s Financial Regulations which are reviewed annually by the Council. The financial year for the Parish Council runs from April to March and the budget is set annually in December, following which the Council submits its Precept request to Warwick District Council.
The Parish Council receives and approves a Financial Report at each meeting. The Financial Report includes all items of expenditure for approval and details of the spend against budget - the reports can be viewed here. Councillors also receive a bank reconciliation every quarter.
Annual Governance and Accountability Returns At the end of each financial year the Council’s accounts are audited by an internal auditor appointed by Council and if expenditure or income is over £25,000 that year then the accounts are also audited by an external auditor appointed by the Government (PKF Littlejohn LLP from April 2018).
The Annual Governance and Accountability Return for 2021/22 is shown below:
Community Infrastructure Levy The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a levy which allows local authorities to fund infrastructure by charging on new development in their area - for more information on the levy click here. Parish Councils receive a proportion of all the CIL receipts arising in their area (15%-25%). When a Town or Parish Council has received CIL funding, an annual spending report is required: Burton Green CIL report 2019/20 Burton Green CIL report 2020/21 Burton Green CIL report 2021/22
