Annual Reporting for All Centres 


For each calendar year of operation all Centres are required to produce and submit to the ARC both an Annual Report and a Centre Outputs and Details of Income & Expenditure report (CODIE) by 31 March of the year immediately following the reporting year.

Completing your Annual Report

This is to be published by the Centre and will report on the Centre's operation and activities over the preceding calendar year.

Completing your Centre Outputs and Detailed Income & Expenditure report (CODIE)

The CODIE is divided into seven parts requiring input, each a separate worksheet within a single MS Excel workbook. The guide and completed sample sheets will help you fill out the blank pro forma sheets. The CODIE is for ARC use only and is not published externally.
