DTLR - A letter to the council informing us of the “Accounts and Audit Amendment Regulations 2001 – S1 2001/3244 was received. It states that the amendment was laid before Parliament on 2 October and will come into force on 23 October.

This has been amended from £5,000 to £50,000. Which means our parish can return to the receipts and payments method.
