In most years the Council’s income is primarily the precept, collected by Leeds City Council, as part of the Council Tax. This is supplemented by occasional grants and one off payments which have to be used for a particular purpose. The end of year & quarterly accounts give a detailed view of income & expenditure down to individual transactions. Theses are considered by the Council at the April (year end accounts), October & January meetings. The full accounts form part of the Minutes & Papers for those meetings.
