The Clerk is our Responsible Financial Officer, and as such one of her duties is to produce monthly financial statements showing our income and expenditure set against our yearly budget. The Councillor with special responsibility for Finance is James Mitchell.
We receive an annual precept from Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council, together with a general grant and double taxation payment. These form the basis of our income, together with other grants which we may apply for towards the costs of our various projects.
All income and expenditure is carefully planned and accounted for. Every year we are audited initially internally and subsequently externally by the Audit Commission, a detailed process which ensures that we are adhering to the correct practices.
We produce a list of income and expenditure at each of our monthly parish meetings and these can be viewed in the monthly minutes.
