End of Year Expenditure and Income
At the end of the financial year the council is required to complete an Annual Return (see section below). Town and Parish council do not produce accounts and balance sheets.
The Annual Return provides summaries of total Expenditure and Income. The council also produces a more useful summary of the financial year broken down into more detailed headings. These summaries can be found below.
Any specific details can be provided on request. A full list of payments made can found in the section titled Monthly Expenditure at the bottom of this page.
Estimates of Income and Expenditure
The Council estimates its income and expenditure requirements in January each year (see Precept below). This is refined by the Council in the following May taking into account brought forward balances not spent in the previous years. Delegated budgets from previous years can be seen below.

The Precept is that element of your Council Tax that is paid to Baildon Town Council.
Every year, the Town Council draws up budgets and calculates how much money it needs for the next Financial Year. These are usually finalised at the January Full Council meeting and then submitted to Bradford Metropolitan District Council (CBMDC). CBMDC co-ordinates the other demands from other statutory authorities such as the Police and themselves and come up with the rate to be paid from 1st April of that year.
