All expenditure of the Parish Council must be within the regulation guidelines of laws & statutes. The accounts of the Parish are public documents. At the Annual General Meeting of the Parish Council, held in May of each year, the Councillors confirm the Standing Orders and Financial Regulations that will govern the work of the Council for the next municipal year.
For the financial year 1st April 2017 to 31st March 2018, PKF Littlejohn LLP was appointed as the External Auditors for Edgmond Parish Council.
