Every year Fishbourne levies a sum of money through Council Tax which pays for its activities that financial year. This sum of money is called the Precept.

In the financial year 2018/19 Fishbourne’s precept was approximately £42000. You can see in more detail how the money is being spent on the Budget page.

Every year the Council’s accounts are inspected by an Internal and an External Auditor to ensure that the money is being spent lawfully. More details on these audits can be found on the Audit page.

Below are the financial documents which are the internal controls on how the Council deals with its financial affairs.
