Financial Plan


Under section 91 of the Local Government Act 2020, the Council must develop and adopt a financial plan to provide a long-term view of the resources that are expected to be available to Council and the proposed/predicted application/use of those resources over a 10-year period.

The Financial Plan should cover all aspects of the Council’s role, including services/operations and capital investment/assets. It should also describe the proposed sources of funds it proposes to have access to and include all the high-level assumptions under-pinning the Plan.

The Benalla Rural City Council Financial Plan demonstrates the following financial management principles:

1.2.1 Revenue, expenses, assets, liabilities, investments and financial transactions are
          managed in accordance with Council's financial policies and strategic plans.

1.2.2  Management of the following financial risks:

a) the financial viability of the Council (refer to section 2.1 Financial Policy Statements).

b) the management of current and future liabilities of the Council. The estimated 10
    year-liabilities are disclosed in section 3.2 Balance Sheet projections.

c) the beneficial enterprises of Council (where appropriate).
