Financial Reporting

Accurate and timely financial reporting provides vital information to a council’s stakeholders as to its financial position, outlook and performance. It is an important tool used in ensuring that councils are made accountable for their actions.

The Local Government Act 1993, Local Government (General) Regulation 2005, the Local Government Code of Accounting Practice and Financial Reporting and the Australian Accounting Standards provide councils with guidance.

Councils can also access additional information that supports financial reporting through the links on this page.
