Finance and General Purposes Committee

The Finance and General Purposes Committee meet as required, scrutinising the financial transactions of the Council and making any necessary recommendations to the Full Council.

From these figures the Parish Council's precept (the amount of money the Council requests in the Council Tax under 'Parish') is calculated by Wycombe District Council.

This Committee is responsible for the Council's annual external and internal audits, bi annual internal audit and preparation of the annual accounts; together with ensuring that the Council is performing all its legal financial obligations.

The Committee is also responsible for the Council's Policies and Procedures and meet to ensure that these are drafted and updated, when necessary, ready for ratification by Full Council.
