6. SUMMARY OF THE FINANCIAL OUTTURN FOR 2018/19
This report shows the outturn position for the financial year ending on 31 March 2019 for both revenue and capital and makes the following recommendations:-
- to carry forward to 2019/20 certain unspent revenue budgets and;
- to re-phase those capital budgets that require completion in 2019/20
A key feature of reporting the outturn for the financial year is to compare it against the latest agreed budget which provides an indication of the accuracy and robustness of financial control and the achievement of the strategic objective to manage resources to deliver the Council’s strategic priorities and service needs.-06-19-06-17-pr-i-18-19-outturn-report-final
