You recieve your budget for the year quarterly but in order to make sure you get the payment you need to complete monitoring information.
- Blank Monitoring Sheet - a downloadable copy of the monitoring sheet for you to complete
- Monitoring Sheet Guide - a handy guide to help you fill in the monitoring sheet
- Direct Payments Traffic Lights - traffic lights system to highlight what you can and cannot spend your Direct Payments budget on
This requires you to fill in a spreadsheet stating what you have spent your money on.
Your spreadsheet needs to match with your bank account and you need to provide a piece of evidence for all the different payments that you have made. This could be an invoice or copy of a wage slip etc.
You will also need to provide a copy of the bank statement so that the council can see that everything matches up. As an employer you are responsible for making sure that this monitoring is completed so that you have enough money in your account to pay your wages.
Shetland Community Connections can help with the monitoring and will try and remind you to submit monitoring but ultimately you need to ensure that you are checking the bank account has enough money.
