Financial Information

End of Year Accounts and Audit


The Precept is the element of your Council Tax that is paid to Witherley Parish Council.

Every year, the Parish Council draws up budgets and calculates how much money it needs for the next Financial Year. These are then submitted to Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council. HBBC co-ordinate the other demands from Leicestershire County Council, Police and themselves and come up with the rate to be paid from 1st April that year.


The Parish Council will agree the budget for the year usually at the December meeting, by latest the January meeting.

From the budget discussions the Council decides the level of Precept to request from Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council.

January 2017 meeting will decide both the budget and the precept levels.

The Parish publishes a monthly list of payments made in the Finance section (near the end) of the Minutes each month. These can be viewed in documents
