2016 Government Account closure

No govt payments after Dec 12

Dr Ngangan said government accounts will be closed on 12 December; no payments will be made by the Finance Department.     

He warned all government departments and statutory organisations to follow the Finance Department circulars because no unsettled warrants will be made after the closure of the accounts.

This is so the 2016 audit can be done in preparation for the 2017 financial year.      

The government accounts will be opened in the first week of Janaury.
