Financial Management Services
The Accountancy & Financial Management service is a section in the Finance division of St Helens Borough Council.
There are two broad roles undertaken by the Accountancy function:
- Support - the provision of sound financial advice to ensure that financial resources available are maximised and optimised.
- Regulation and control - to set and maintain standards of financial administration that enable the implementation of the council's statutory duties.
Two of the main tasks undertaken are the formulation of budgets and the preparation of the Annual Accounts.
