Simple accounts are prepared to 31 March each year by the Responsible Financial Officer, in this case the Parish Clerk. These are approved by the Parish Council and audited by an internal auditor. The Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities requires they are published no later than 1 July in the year.

The Parish Council is classified as "small" and is exempt from external audit.
