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.
Every year the Council has to complete an Annual Return which gives a high level view of income & expenditure along with reports from the Council’s Internal & External Auditors.
Paper copies of the Returns for the last five years are available from the Clerk.
The Asset Register lists all the Council’s assets including land, street furniture and office equipment
