SIGNIFICANT VARIANCES

 

There follows an explanation of variances of 15% or more between the year ending 31/3/05 and the previous year.

 

3. Other Receipts. Other Receipts increased from £958 in 2003/4 to £3758 in 2004/5, an increase of £2800. This is due to the grants of £1365 for the Village Sign and £1000 for the Taxi Voucher Scheme, plus the increased Vat refund of £1248.63 resulting from the associated higher spending.

 

6. Total Other Payments. Other Payments increased from £3150 in 2003/4 to £12050 in 2004/5, an increase of  £8900. This was due to the purchase and installation of the Village Sign at £2747.37, the start up of the Taxi Voucher Scheme at £989 and the installation of the village hall floor at £4345.04. Total cost of projects was £8080.34 and increased spending meant increased Vat of £1251.96.

 

7. & 8. Balances Carried Forward & Total Cash & Investments. This figure reduced from £14619 at the end of 2003/4 to £10563 at the end of 2004/5, a reduction of £4056. This was due to the spend of £4345.04 on the village hall floor, which had been held as an earmarked reserve.

 

9. Fixed Assets. The value of the fixed assets has increased from £697 in 2003/4 to £3323 in 2004/5 due to the purchase of the village sign valued at £2600.

 

 

The above represents fairly the bank reconciliation and Significant Variances associated with the receipts and payments account for the year.

 

 

Approved at the Meeting of the Parish Council held on 31st. May, 2005.
