Message: date_default_timezone_get(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.

Financial Procedures

Financial Procedures


Practices are advised to design and implement Financial Procedures which define all aspects of the accounting and budgeting processes. The Procedures should include controls on levels of authorisation (e.g. who can authorise what value of purchases/expenditure levels, cheque signatory values, petty cash authorisation/reconciliation) and in particular controls on authorisation of electronic funds transfers (e.g. BACS and Internet banking) where the dual signature procedures used for cheques cannot be applied. The Practice's Accountants can usually assist with the preparation of suitable Financial Procedures.

There is a set of draft Financial Procedures (which can be customised to suit the Practice) in the Financial index of the Members Library. If you are not a Member, click for information about the benefits of membership and how to subscribe.
