Academies budget forecast return: outturn 2016 to 2017
Form and guide to help academy trusts submit their 2016 to 2017 budget forecast return: outturn (BFRO) to the Education and Skills Funding Agency.
Access to the BFRO online form is now closed.
The documents on this page are for use by those academy trusts that need to complete their 2016 to 2017 budget forecast return: outturn (BFRO) by 19 May 2017.
ESFA introduced the BFRO to ensure the sector can accurately report its financial data to HM Treasury.
You can read further information about this in Peter Lauener’s letter to academy trust accounting officers: March 2017 and also in our budget forecast return: outturn webinar.
We published an Excel workbook and guidance to help you prepare for the new online form, which remains available for reference purposes only. It is also available in an open document format for those who do not have access to Excel.
