Management of a council’s finances is the responsibility of the appointed ‘Responsible Financial Officer’ (RFO). At Halewood Town Council, this is the Town Clerk.
Under the Accounts and Audit (England) Regulations 2011, it is the RFO’s role to ensure that the financial management of the council is adequate and effective and that the council has a sound system of internal control.
Underpinning these controls are a set of Financial Regulations which the Town Council approves every year at its Annual Meeting. For access to the council’s current Financial Regulations, please click the link here: Halewood Town Council Financial Regulations
