The Council financial year ends on 31st March 2017, not that far away now. If you are a new or nearly new clerk, then you probably won't have been through the year-end process before; if so, then this course is an absolute MUST for you! "Preparing for Year End Audit" is delivered by John Marshall, a member of NCALC's Internal Auditor Panel who is himself a CiLCA qualified working Clerk and an elected member of a Parish Council. John will guide you through the whole process, from closing your accounts at year end to completing your Annual Return and preparing for Internal Audit, as well as legislative changes including the Transparency Code. This is an interactive course that looks at what information you need and why, how to fill in the Annual Return form (and the common mistakes to avoid), and how to ensure that everyone on your council, clerks and councillors alike, are properly engaged in the process. Even if you have a few Annual Returns under your belt, how do you normally get on with the end of year procedures and the submission of your council's Annual Return? Do you have the whole thing planned with military precision, or is always a bit of a last minute rush? Perhaps you have some basic questions that you have always wondered about but have been too embarrassed to ask. If the answer to any of these is 'yes' then this course is for you too.

Who Should Attend?

The course is particularly suitable for Clerks who are new to the year audit process.
