The year end Statement of Accounts is prepared after the financial year and sets out the income and expenditure account for the relevant year. For previous years and historic data, please contact us.
Each year, town and parish councils have to produce a summary of their accounts, along with a statement that demonstrates that there is adequate governance and control in place. This is provided in the form of the Council’s Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) which is audited internally and then submitted to the Government’s external auditor for evaluation. Further information about the external auditor and their procedures can be found at www.pkf-littlejohn.com. Copies of the Council’s annual AGAR documents can be found on the following page Governance & Accountability
Annual Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Report
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a planning charge that local authorities can set on new development in order to raise funds to help fund the infrastructure, facilities and services in their area. Most new development which creates net additional floor space of 100 square metres or more, or creates a new dwelling, is potentially liable for the levy. Some developments may be eligible for relief or exemption from the levy. This money is collected and paid to the planning authority (Cornwall Council) and a contribution is made to the appropriate Town/Parish council.
Every year, a report must be submitted to Cornwall Council detailing CIL receipts, expenditure and retained balances. All Town & Parish Councils are required to display this form or an equivalent on their own websites each financial year.
