The Parish Council sets a budget each year and this is largely funded from the Council Tax. Council Tax is charged on each property in a parish and it can be seen on your annual Council Tax bill. It is used to fund all of the activities that a Parish Council undertakes for the benefit of the community. The County Council, District Council, Police and Fire Service also fund themselves through the Council Tax. At the end of each financial year, the Parish Council is required, in accordance with the Accounts and Audit Regulations, to complete an Annual Return setting out its Accounting Statements and an Annual Governance Statement. These statements and their supporting documentation are audited by the Council’s Internal Auditor.
East Farndon Parish Council declares the council’s gross income and gross expenditure for the year ended 31 March 2021 does not exceed £25,000. This qualifies the Parish Council to be covered by the Smaller Councils Transparency Code. This means that the Parish Council must publish the documents shown in the accounts for the year ended 31st March 2021 (included below) in accordance with the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015, the Local Audit (Smaller Authorities) Regulations 2015 and the transparency code for smaller authorities.
