Dear Sirs,


Presteigne and Norton Town Council wishes to comment on the above proposals. The Council has an annual budget of approx £70,000 and serves a population of around 2500. It is a relatively small local Council but is active in obtaining grants to carry out local projects.


The Council believes that external audit fees charged should relate to the actual time spent and not be a standard fee based on a table of fees relating to budgets. This it feels provides a just system where Councils are rewarded for organised and clear accounting statements and where larger Councils do not end up subsidising smaller ones.
