The financial year runs from 1st April to 31st March.  An annual budget is agreed in November each year and the annual Precept figure is finalised and agreed no later than the January Parish Council Meeting.

The accounts are subject to an annual internal audit by a locally commissioned provider. Following this, they are submitted to an external auditor appointed by the Audit Commission.
