Our financial year runs from 1 April to 31 March. We agree an annual budget in January each year and also decide how much the annual Precept* should be set at. As a smaller authority with an income of less than £25,000 in the financial year Scole Parish Council has the choice to “opt in” for an External Annual Audit carried out by the appointed External Auditors – PKF Littlejohn.
*Parish Councils are empowered to raise money for their activities through a tax (the Precept) on the village residents which is collected on their behalf by the District Council, as an addition to the District and County Council Tax. This is then paid to the Parish Council in two equal instalments.
Below are the Annual Return documents for 2018/19, the Annual return documents relating to previous years can be obtained from the Clerk.
