Are you ready to submit the Budget Forecast Return Outturn (BFRO) and Budget Forecast Return Three Year (BFR3Y)?

Academy trusts are required to submit these returns to the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA).

As stated by the ESFA, the single form will require:

  • All the BFRO data as usual - except the debtors and creditors section
  • All the BFR3Y data
  • Your academy trust's 3-year forecast

Just two key dates for 2021:
