Council accounts and budget, including Statement of Accounts and the Medium Term Financial Plan
The Medium Term Financial Plan (MTFP) provides a focus on both Revenue expenditure (day-to-day running costs of providing services) and Capital expenditure (long term investment in infrastructure like schools and roads).
The department is a support service and delivers all of the strategic and corporate functions traditionally provided by a local authority finance department.
Each year the County Council is required to produce a Statement of Accounts. This document sets out a summary of our financial affairs and together with the Annual Plan and many other plans we must produce by law, provides a commentary on our performance. Making sure we are accountable for our work is extremely important and our financial statements help to show how your money has been used. The links below provide access to our Statement of Accounts, the Annual Audit Letter and the accounts of The Somerset Waste Partnership
The Statement of Accounts is available to read by everyone. For more information on these accounts, or to obtain a copy of them (free to Somerset residents) please use links in the Downloads section to download a copy in PDF format.
