Finance, Budget & Expenditure
The Parish Council is open and transparent about the way it manages its finances. This page contains information on the way the Council protects its finances and what it has spent money on. The Council’s finances are monitored on a day to day basis by the Responsible Financial Officer (Parish Clerk). The Council appoints an internal auditor who assesses the Council’s compliance with relevant legislation and a further audit is carried out by an external auditor appointed by the Audit Commission Precept.
The Parish Council receives the majority of its income through the precept; an annual sum of money collected with the Council Tax by Cheshire East Council. The precept for 2020/21 is £40,000 which is £78.16 for a current Band D Council tax property.
