COVID-19: Best practice in financial reconciliation

Additional funding and payment ‘on plan’ during the COVID-19 crisis means that local authorities and providers need to work together to reconcile expenditure and claim costs effectively and collaboratively. This guidance sets out principles, broad processes and points to consider to make reconciliation as effective and collaborative as possible.

This guidance has been produced in collaboration and consultation with a number of organisations. We would like to thank everyone involved for giving their time to this given the pressures of the COVID-19 crisis.

We will keep the guidance under review to make sure it takes into account the changing COVID-19 context. Please let us know of any changes that need to be made.
