Audit of Accounts

Statement of Accounts 2021/22 - notice of late publication for public inspection


  • The Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014
  • The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (Revised)
  • The Accounts and Audit Amendments Regulations 2022

The council's draft 2021/22 Statement of Accounts will not be available for public inspection by the deadline of 1 August 2022 as required by the Regulation 10 paragraph (1) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 as amended by The Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2022. We have not been able to complete the draft Statement of Accounts due to the ongoing audit for the preceding year requiring increased assurance work coupled with resource limitations of the audit team which has caused a delay in the audit, approval and publication of the 2020/21 Statement of Accounts.

A further notice will be published in due course setting out the public inspection period once the draft 2021/22 Statement of Accounts have been finalised.

Publication date: 
Wednesday 17 August 2022
