Financial Reporting

Reports Available

Each year, the General Accounting and Reporting Division produces the county’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, the Public Utilities System Annual Financial Report, the Manatee County Port Authority Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, as well as individual statements and reports for the Clerk of the Circuit Court.

General Accounting staff monitors and maintains the county’s financial records. On a monthly basis, Interim Financial Reports are prepared which provides a snapshot of the county’s financial position. In conjunction with the interim reports, staff prepares a separate Port Financial Schedule; a condensed summary of the Port’s operations and financial position.

The County’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) provides a detailed view into the financial results and position of the County. Published annually, as of the end of the County’s fiscal year on September 30th, this report has been awarded the Government Finance Officer’s Association’s (GFOA) Certificate in Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for 36 consecutive years.

The Manatee County Port Authority Comprehensive Annual Financial Report provides further detail into this dependent special district's operations and financial position. The document, published annually, has also received the GFOA’s Certificate in Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for 21 consecutive years.
