Full marks for finance records

COUNCIL finance records have been given full marks from an auditor.

Accounts for Widdrington Station and Stobswood Parish Council have been signed off by auditor David Booth, saying the appropriate books of accounts have been properly kept, financial regulations have been met, payments were supported by invoices, expenditure was approved and VAT was appropriately accounted for.

He concluded: “The Internal Auditor would like to record appreciation of the very high standard of book keeping and record keeping which accompany the annual return.”
