Finance

Annual statement of accounts

The statement of accounts is an audited document setting out our financial position, income, expenditure and accounting policies.

Budget

We continue to face financial pressure as funding from central government is reduced. Go to our budget page for more information about our latest budget and details of how we balanced the books to prevent reductions in services.

Data transparency

We publish a wide range of information, including payments we makes to external providers that are for £250 or more, Procurement Card transactions, details of chief officer pay and our current contracts register. Find out more on our open data pages.

Protecting public money

As a local authority, we are responsible for ensuring that every penny we receive is put to good use in providing services and protecting public funds. For more information on our internal policies and controls that ensure money is protected, please go to our protecting public money page.
