Groups are expected to submit reports on their annual membership, accomplishments and activities on or before 30 November of the next Scouting year. (eg. Annual Reports for the 2015-16 Scouting year are due before 30 November, 2016)
Group Financial Report
Except for some LDS Scouting Groups*, all Groups are required to submit reports on their income and spending each year along with the Annual Report.
*LDS Scouting Groups that do not received funding through fundraisers and/or donations, and have programs fully funded through the Church budget should use this template as a example. This letter should be accompanied by a completed Annual Report.
