Annual Report and Financial Statements
At the end of each financial year, we produce our Annual Report and Financial Statements which detail our performance against our set targets as well as how we are achieving them.
You can download these documents below.
In relation to the Financial Statements for 2016/17, please note:
Under section 416(1) of the Local Government Act 1993 NSW (the “Act”), a council’s financial reports for a year must be prepared and audited within a period of 4 months after the end of that year, namely by 31 October 2017.
At the request of the Council’s auditor and pursuant to section 416(3) of the Act, Moree Plains Shire has applied to the Office of Local Government for an extension of time for the preparation and auditing of Council’s 2016-17 financial statements beyond 31 October 2017.
An initial extension to 30 November 2017 was granted to Moree Plains Shire Council pursuant to section 416(5) of the Act. This has been further extended until 28 February 2018.
As at 30 November 2017 and for the reasons described above, the Council is not in a position to include the council’s audited financial reports for the year ended 30 June 2017 with the Annual Report 2016/17 (refer below). Council considers it important to provide timely information to our community. The Annual Report is one of the key points of accountability between a council and its community.
Because the Act does not provide any discretion for an extension of time to be granted in respect of the preparation of the annual report, and the Annual Report 2016/17 is otherwise complete save and except for the council’s audited financial report, the Annual Report 2016/17 has been made publicly available on this website below.
