2014/15 Accounts

This financial year ran from 1st April 2014 to 31st March 2015.

The Parish Council's accounts are made up of several documents, starting with the budget which was approved in January 2014:
TPC Agreed Budget 2014-15.pdf

The Council finished the financial year below budget, but this was only because of lower than expected expenditure on maintenance items (grasscutting and the caretaker). 

A breakdown and analysis of the position at the end of the year is given in these reports:

The accounts undergo several stages of checks.

The first has been carried out by Sue Welch, who is Clerk to Darley with Menwith Parish Council. Her report is in the following document: TPC 14-15 Internal Auditor's Opinion.pdf

All local councils are required to complete and submit an 'annual return'. This is audited by a firm of accountants appointed by the Audit Commission. Tanfield Parish Council's Annual Return for the 2014/15 period can be viewed here: TPC 14-15 Annual Return - Final.pdf

An explanation of the significant variances (where there is a variance of more than 15%) between the 2013/14 and 2014/15 financial years is given in this document: TPC Explanation of Variances 2014-15.pdf
