Summary

New policy for the management and handling of cash across the SomersetCounty Council

Main News Story

The Senior Leadership Team have recently signed off a new policy for the management and handling of cash across the council.  The policy can be found using the link below. 

All relevant Managers and Staff should read the policy and ensure it is complied with at all times. Furthermore, all staff involved in handling cash and/or cheques and banking should be made aware of the requirements of and have access to the policy.  Failure to adhere to the policy could lead to disciplinary action for non-compliance.

 

The Council will be moving towards electronic only methods of collecting income in the future, so these procedures are foreseen to be applicable for an interim period whilst we still accept cash and cheque payments. It is anticipated that some services will be fully “cashless” by April 2020 with a view of moving all services to "cashless" by April 2021. If there is an impact for your service with move to being “cashless” then please contact Steve Rose, Exchequer Manager, as soon as possible so we can work with you.
