Council Tax Financial Information

Medium Term Financial Strategy 2024/25 - 26/27

The Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS) sets out our approach to medium term financial planning and supports the delivery of the objectives and programmes set out in the Council Plan. It is designed to help provide a stable financial base from which to deliver our priorities, to move towards a more strategic longer term planning approach and to set a sound financial planning framework for Solihull Council.

The refreshed MTFS is supported by the Revenue Strategy, which includes details of the budget for 2024/25, together with the Corporate Capital Strategy and the Treasury Management Strategy

The Corporate Capital Strategy incorporates our strategy on the flexible use of capital receipts, which sets out how Solihull Council could use any capital receipts from the sale of property, plant or equipment assets to fund the costs of service reform. 

The Statement of Accounts


The Council’s 2022/23 Final Statement of Accounts was approved by the Council’s Governance Committee on 26 September 2023 with delegated approval provided for the accounts to be signed at a later date, on the basis that there were no material changes to the accounts. There were no material changes and the audited accounts were authorised for issue on 1 March 2024. The external Auditors concluded their audit following the issue of the Auditor’s Annual Report on 28 March 2024.

The Statement of Accounts includes our external auditor Grant Thornton’s independent audit report, the narrative report and all of the Council's financial statements, including the Comprehensive Income and Expenditure Statement for the financial year and the Balance Sheet as at 31 March 2023. As the audit is now fully concluded, the Council has published the Notice of Conclusion of the Audit for 2022/23 and the Audit Certificate

The Annual Governance Statement

The preparation and publication of an Annual Governance Statement (AGS) is a statutory requirement. The AGS is the formal statement that recognises, records and publishes the Council’s governance arrangements. It is an open and honest self-assessment of Solihull Council’s (SMBC’s) performance across all of its activities, with a clear statement of the actions being taken or required to address areas of concern.

The Council’s Annual Governance Statement (AGS) for 2022/23 was approved by the Council’s Governance Committee on 27 July 2023.
