Closedown 20/21 REMINDER: School Year End Balance Reporting via AnyComms/Devon Transfer
Posted on 22 April 2021 by firstname.lastname@example.org
A number of schools are still yet to submit the pre-populated form for Surplus/Deficit Balances via AnyComms/Devon Transfer. Please ensure this is returned as soon as possible.
Please review the form and answer all questions, once complete, please return via AnyComms.
We will require a detailed explanation for Deficit/Surplus Balances that fall within the following thresholds. Please record your cumulative deficit/surplus balance on the return:
- Surplus balances that are 5% or more of delegated resources (School Budget Share) for Secondary schools or 8% or more for Special and Primary schools. There will be no requirement to report where the balance is less than £50,000.
- ANY Deficit balance. If for whatever reason a school has a deficit balance at the end of a financial year, the deficit should be treated as a charge against the school’s budget share for the following year.
Note: If you are part of a single budget federation, only the hub school will receive a pre-populated form for completion.
Please be aware that you will need to access AnyComms/Devon Transfer via your internet browser as the pre-populated forms cannot be accessed via the FMS shortcut.
Further guidance on how to access the form is provided here: https://devoncc.sharepoint.com/:w:/s/PublicDocs/Education/EbNRdxGNWi1Due0tww3kYncBzNxnDgd3O43y0e3bb61Dnw?e=QcmpSB
