ANNUAL GOVERNANCE AND ACCOUNTABILITY RETURN

Following the end of each financial year (March 31st), the Council has to make a return confirming its accounts and its compliance with governance procedures. During April it is prepared by the Clerk, checked by the Internal Auditor and then approved in stages by the Council at its meetings in April and May. Prior to 2017-18 the return was then sent to External Auditors for their approval but following a change in rules Councils such as ours, whose gross income or gross expenditure is £25000 or less, are now exempt from an external audit. Instead an exemption certificate is sent to them and the Return is published on this website, where it remains for future reference for 6 years. We have also published details of the figures included within the Return in order to provide further clarity.

As part of the requirements set out in the Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities we are asked to provide an explanation for any comments made by the external auditor. The internal auditor should have ticked the 'not applicable' box under K of the Annual Internal Audit report but omitted to do so. This matter will be checked in future before the document is submitted to the external auditor.

Copies of earlier annual returns are available by contacting the Clerk. These were produced in paper form only and pre-dated this website.

BUDGET AND PRECEPT FOR FORTHCOMING YEAR

Each year the Parish Council calculates how much money it needs to raise from the Precept to balance its finances, taking into account the projected expenditure offset by anticipated income raised elsewhere (usually rents from property which it owns and lets) and allowing for any use of reserves. This Precept request is sent to Harrogate Borough Council who then incorporate the figure into the Council Tax demand which goes to every property in the Parish. The calculation is normally made in December for the following financial year. 


Budget and precept calculations approved in December 2019 for the current financial year : KMLDPC - Budget and Precept calculations 2020-21
