Event description

Description

Budgeting and Reserves

The preparation of an Annual Budget is one of the key statutory tasks undertaken at a council, irrespective of its size.

  • The budget results in the council setting the precept for the year;
  • Gives the clerk and other officers overall authority to make spending commitments in line with decisions of the council;
  • Enables progress monitoring during the year by comparing actual spending against planned spending.

This course for clerks and councillors will increase understanding of how the budget is put together and should be used. The Why, When and How, if you like. We will review the key stages, statutory requirements and best practices that govern this important process.

Reserves

Local Councils need to hold an amount in reserves to meet unexpected expenditure. Typically this is between 3 to 12 months. We will discuss the General Reserve and Ear Marked Reserves and how these should be managed and justified.

DCK Accounting Solutions Ltd are specialists in local government, SME and sole Trader Accounting working closely with the National Association of Councils to provide quality advice and training to local councils.

Registration will commence at 9:30am with the course starting promptly at 10:00am. Refreshments on arrival and a light business lunch will be served. Please advise of any food allergies.
