Future of Local Authority Finance


Local authority finance is going through a period of unprecedented change and now, more than ever, finance professionals need a clear guide to all that is happening. These CIPFA / Grant Thornton seminars reviewed the key strategic issues arising from developments in local authority funding, accounting and financial reporting, and provided insight into how Local Authorities can review processes and best prepare to meet the challenges ahead.

The sessions provided a clear and concise update on both strategic and technical developments, including likely future changes in Accounting Standards, improvements to local authority financial reporting arrangements, and the latest developments in the reform of Council Tax discounts and Business Rates Retention. The speaker slides are provided below, and a summary of questions discussed by the Question Time Panel sessions will also be made available to subscribers.
