Each year Sandridge Parish Council calculates how much money it requires to provide its services or achieve any planned projects. This sum, called the precept, is collected by St Albans District Council as part of a household’s council tax. Sandridge Parish Council does not receive any money from central government.
In order to comply with the Accounts and Audit Regulations and associated documents, the Parish Council is required to publish certain information.
The Local Audit & Accountability Act 2014 and the Accounts & Audit Regulations 2015 set out the responsibilities of all local councils in respect of their accounting and auditing procedures.
Each year, the Council’s financial accounts and statements must be examined by an independent internal auditor appointed by the Council.
Our statutory accounts are produced in the form of the Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) which is subject to a Limited Assurance Audit by PKF Littlejohn LLP, 1 Westferry Circus, Canary Wharf, London, E14 4HD.
The Clerk is the Responsible Financial Officer (RFO) and accountable for all financial records of the Council and the proper administration of its finances, as well as:
- Managing the affairs to secure economic, efficient and effective use of resources and safeguarding its assets
- Approving the Annual Governance and Accountability Return
- Approving the Statement of Accounts.
