Minutes:

The Committee was presented with an abridged annual report and management statement of accounts for 2020/21 in accordance with the vision of working to provide the most professional, compassionate and sensitive services to meet the needs and expectations of people using Bramcote Crematorium.

 

Discussions ensued around the income and expenditure statement provided for the Bramcote Crematorium and the impact of the pandemic. The Revenue Account surplus reserve was £590,629. £491,341 higher than 2019/20 and included a transfer from the Memorial reserve that was no longer required and a contribution of £50,000 to the Repairs and Renewals reserve.

 

There had been a transfer to reserves from net income of £416,589 after £618,432 financing costs including a £600,000 distribution to the Joint Authorities in accordance with the annual budget.

 

Surplus on operations for the year was £1,035,000, £244,000 higher than budget. This was due mainly to £240,000 additional income and lower employee costs. £40,000 was offset by the additional direct costs associated with the volume of sales of £36,000.

 

            RESOLVED that:

1.    The attached Annual Report and Management Statement of Accounts for the financial year 20201/21 be noted.

2.    The proposal in the Annual report to submit quarterly monitoring reports and an annual outturn report in line with Council procedures be approved.

3.    The accumulated revenue surplus and other investments be retained by the Joint Committee with the position being reviewed when the revised 2021/22 estimates are considered.
