Governor Conflict of Interests / Employees with Benefits over £100k

It is a statutory requirement for all Governors at Commonweal to record any conflict of interests held either personally or through a company or relative or partner.  An ‘interest’ in this case, is a situation where a member of the governing body may be affected personally or financially, directly or indirectly, or in some other way by a decision made at a meeting where the governor is present.

It is also a statutory requirement to include a note on the number of employees whose benefits exceed £100k, in £10k bandings, for the previous year ended 31 August.

Benefits for this purpose include salary, employers’ pension contributions, other taxable benefits and termination payments.

There was 1 (one) employee, for the year ending 31st August 2021, whose aggregate salary and benefits (as noted above) was between £110k and £120k.
