At the end of the Financial Year (31st March 2021) Polperro Community Council is required by law:
A. to prepare Accounting Statements for the year ended 31 March 2021 in the form required by proper practices (the relevant annual return, now known as the Annual Governance and Accountability Return or AGAR, Part 1, 2 or 3);
B. to approve and publish the unaudited AGAR including the Accounting Statements.
C. to provide for the exercise of public rights; and
D. to publish the audited AGAR, including the signed external auditor report, by 30 September 2021.
This process will begin on 1st April and each stage will be documented on this web page and on the Parish Notice boards. This will include the dates when public rights of inspection of accounts and documents can be exercised. If you have questions about any part of the process, please contact the Clerk.
Polperro Community Council finances its activities primarily through the Precept (the amount of money it raises from council tax payers in the parish). This is collected by Cornwall Council as part of your Council Tax Bill and you will see the Parish element of Council Tax listed in the “Breakdown of Charges” box on your bill. Polperro Community Council has set its Precept for the Financial Year April 2021 to March 2022) at £85,175, the same as the previous year. The precept amounts to around £2.37 per week for a Band D household.
The Council also receives income from the door-pay systems on the public toilets at Crumplehorn and Fishnabridge, and an estimate of the annual income from these has been used in the formulation of the Precept. The Council begins its deliberations on the next year’s Precept level from its October meeting onwards and submits its final bid to Cornwall Council after the December meeting.
