Consider report by Director – Finance & Corporate Governance.  (Attached)


There had been circulated copies of a report by the Director - Finance & Corporate Governance providing details of the income and expenditure for the Duns Common Good Fund for the year 2020/21 including balance sheet values at 31 March 2021 and proposed budget for 2020/21.  Appendix 1 to the report provided the actual Income and Expenditure position for 2020/21 which currently showed a surplus of £523 for the year, which was better than the previously reported surplus on 20 April 202, sue to an improvement in the return from the Aegon Asset Management Fund.  Appendix 2 to the report contained a balance sheet value to 31 March 2021 and showed an increase in the reserves of £3,244, partly due to the unrealised loss on the Aegon Asset Management Fund.  Appendix 3 to the report showed the value of the Aegon Asset Management Fund to 31 March 2021.  In response to a question regarding cash available, the Director – Finance & Corporate Governance explained that £2,300 was available or the cash investments with Aegon could be realised so it was ultimately up to the Sub-Committee to decide what to do.  In terms of income during the year, the dividend could be used but in order to preserve the Fund’s capital assets the income helped with the running costs.  The net funds available to disburse without impacting on capital would be £523, which was the surplus for the year 2020/21.
