The Government has introduced a mandatory Transparency Code from 1 April 2016 for smaller authorities with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000. Turnover is defined as the higher of an authority’s gross income or gross expenditure for the year. The Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities requires the online publication of key information to provide taxpayers with a clear picture of the Council’s activities, spending and governance to increase democratic accountability.
