Financial Information

Year-to-date Accounts

Estimates of Income and Expenditure

Stanway Parish Council receives nearly all its income from the Precept (Council Tax) and this is collected on behalf of SPC by Colchester Borough Council (as it does for the County Council and the Police).

Every year, starting in November, the Council prepares its budget for the following financial year. The difference between budget income (cemetery fees, other income, grants etc) and budget expenditure (salaries, maintenance, capital expenditure, administrative costs, provision of reserves, etc), less any use of current reserves, is the amount of funds that the Parish Council will request CBC to collect via the Council Tax demands issued in April each year. This is known as the Precept.
