Local Government is going through a period of significant change, especially with austerity and devolution. Localisation of business rates is ongoing and revenue support grant is being phased out. There is uncertainty about local government finance because of the Fair Funding Review and ‘Brexit’. This is changing local government and how its finances are managed.
In the current climate of financial challenges and uncertainty, a working knowledge of local authority finance will put you and your colleagues in a position of advantage. However, what you really want to know is not only how local government finance is supposed to work but also how it REALLY WORKS in practice. This will not be about theory but about behaviour and managing that behaviour to allow you to get the most out of your budget.
The session will address the following issues:
The session is accompanied by a very useful book that is designed for reference after the session entitled: “Lifting the Lid on Local Government Finance”
The outcome of the session is to provide participants with the knowledge to be able to ask the right questions and better manage ther budgets and those who are managing it for them.
Whether you are in a London Borough, Metropolitan, Unitary, County or District Council or otherwise involved in local government; whether you are an Elected Member, Non-Financial Manager, or even a member of the Finance Team, you will benefit from “Lifting the Lid on Local Government Finance”.
