Monthly Expenditure

All non-petty cash payments are authorised by Council generally on a monthly basis at The Full Council and/or Finance meetings although some are also now approved at Planning meetings if payment timescales are exceeded. These payments all require Council approval and are then generally made by faster payment via a secure internet banking system which applies multi-layer authorisations whilst direct debits and standing orders are merely advised as the original authority for these would have been approved before original implementation. In the now rare event that payment is made by cheque, 2 mandated signatories must sign each cheque before issue.

In line with current recommendations in order to be more transparent, Councils are being encouraged to publish any expenditures in excess of £500.00 and Bradley Stoke Town Council has therefore decided to publish all payment lists (including items below £500) in order to provide the community with full information of monthly expenditures.

PLEASE NOTE THE BULK OF VAT ON EXPENDITURE IS RECLAIMED AS BRADLEY STOKE TOWN COUNCIL HAS 'OPTED TO TAX'.

Basically this means that VAT is applied to all hire charge income and the difference between the hire charge VAT and the expenditure VAT is then reclaimed on a quarterly basis.

All quoted hire charges include the VAT element.
