Horsted Keynes Parish Council raises and spends money for the benefit of the local community. Much of the income comes from the Precept which is the element of a resident's Council Tax that is paid to Horsted Keynes Parish Council.
Every year, the Parish Council draws up budgets and calculates how much money it needs for the next Financial Year. Budgets are usually finalised at the January Parish Council meeting and then the required precept amount submitted to Mid Sussex District Council.
Mid Sussex District Council co-ordinate the demands from the Parish Council, West Sussex County Council, Sussex Police and themselves and issue the Council Tax bills to be paid from 1st April each year.
Since householders must pay Council Tax the Parish Council needs to be be accountable for where its proportion of the money goes and for providing sound financial management.
