Where to find your SFVS form
Schools are reminded that the deadline for the annual SFVS return for the 2023/24 financial year is approaching.
The annual return is due by 29th March 2024.
For guidance on how to complete the return, please review the information on the Grid, with further information available on the DfE website. As suggested in previous bulletin updates, your completed SFVS form should now be scheduled for review and sign off by Governors, thereby ensuring it can be submitted to SIAS prior to the 29th March 2024. If you are yet to commence preparing your return you are now at risk of having insufficient time to complete the return and should take action to avoid missing the submission deadline.
We are aware that some schools have been finding it difficult to download the SFVS and related party transaction forms from the government website. We have therefore added copies of the forms directly onto the Grid for schools to download. The forms can be found on the 'SFVS returns process' page under the heading 'SFVS returns form'.
