What happens to the difference between the actual billing and the pay-over?

The City pays the CID a monthly amount equivalent to one-twelfth of its approved budget less 3% as a provision for bad debts. The provision for bad debts is kept in a ring-fenced account for the CID. At the end of the financial year the City reconciles the billing with the CID budget pay overs and any under or over billing is offset against the accumulated bad debt account. This account is subsequently compared with the arrears as at the end of the financial year. When the latter is less than the accumulated bad debts, 75% of the difference is paid to the CID as per the Finance Agreement concluded between the City and the CID.
