National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has published its updated Model Financial Regulations for England and Wales.

The documents include easy-to-use templates to create financial regulations for your local (parish and town) council that are up-to-date with the current legislation and regulations, and guidance to help complete the templates.

The financial regulations are an essential tool for local councils of all sizes. They set out the framework within which the council ensures responsible and sustainable management of the council’s finances.

An electronic copy was sent to all clerks on 22 August 2019.
