Annual budgets and financial report

Revenue and capital budgets

As part of the terms of reference of the Accountancy Service, the statutory budgets are produced. These detailed budgets are summarised for Publication as the Revenue and Capital Budgets.

The budgets are split into sections that are accessible via the links below.

The linked documents contain budgeted and actual expenditure.

Note that actual expenditure is included for comparative purposes only and that the figures are rounded to the nearest whole pound.

Whilst the rounding adjustments do not affect the accuracy of the data, they can result in minor discrepancies between the expenditure, subtotals and totals shown.

Annual financial report

We publish an Annual Financial Report in a format which is prescribed by CIPFA (The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accounting). 

The accounts show how money has been spent in the financial year.

In accordance with Accounts and Audit (England) Regulations 2015, the Public Notice in regards to inspecting, questioning or objecting to the Council's Annual Financial Report, Audit of Accounts Public Notice is available:

Audit of Accounts Public Notice 2022 to 2023 (PDF) [80KB]

Audit of Accounts Public Notice 2021 to 2022 (PDF) [65KB]

Following the conclusion of the audit for the year 2021 to 2022, the public notice is available:  Public notice of consultation (PDF) [109KB]

The accounts for each financial year are subject to external audit, after which the Auditor's Annual Report is received.

The external audit of the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2023 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, EY LLP, due to the complex set of factors contributing to audit delays across the sector. This situation is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015.

Therefore, this notification explains, as per paragraph (2a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2022/23 final statement of accounts in line with deadline of 30th September 2023, as per paragraph (1).

The audit committee will consider the results of the 2022/23 audit, after which we will publish the final audited accounts.
