Respondents of this study were selected using purposive sampling technique, and data were analyzed by using descriptive and qualitative analysis techniques. The study found out that, major challenges which face Dodoma Municipal Council (DMC) in the preparations and presentations of financial statements include challenges associated with internal control systems, challenges associated with capacity building, and challenges associated with financial matters. The study recommends that, LGAs should abide to approved accounting standards issued by NBAA, strengthening the LGAs audit committee and internal audit functions, full utilization of integrated financial management system, strengthening financial statements processes and enhance risk management frame work. In addition, in order to improve the preparations and presentations of financial statements the Central Government should timely disburse the approved funds to LGAs and also should employ adequate accountants for LGAs
