Financial Consulting, Municipality Compliance, Municipality Revenue Enhancement,
The 2011 annual IMFO Conference held in Cape Town was a resounding success with the main challenge for municipalities and talking point of the conference being cash flow shortages and difficulties with accurate budgeting.
It is evident that inaccurate forecasting of service income driven by the quantum of the expenditure budget alone resulted in the findings that 90 municipal budgets were insufficiently funded for 2010/11 and at the close of 2009/10 financial year, 63 municipalities reported negative cash positions. This inability to accurately forecast income not only adversely affects service delivery, but is placing increasing strain on municipalities and their relationship with Auditor General and National Treasury.
