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 November 2013.

The Council finished the year significantly under-budget due to lower than expected expenditure on maintenance items (playground, caretaker and grasscutting). A breakdown and analysis of the position at the end of the year is given in these reports:

End of Year Accounts

The Parish Council is now (May 2015) in the process of preparing and approving the accounts for this financial year. The end of year lists of payments made, monies received and the bank reconciliation can also be viewed using the links below.


The accounts will undergo several stages of checks. 

The first has been carried out by Sue Welch, who is Clerk to Darley with Menwith Parish Council and has been appointed as the Council's Internal Auditor for 2014/15. Her report is in the following document: NSPC 14-15 Internal Auditor's Opinion.pdf

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

The audit of the Council's 2014/15 accounts has now been formally concluded. You can view a notice to this effect here: NSPC 14-15 Notice of Conclusion of Audit.pdf
