Statement of Accounts and Annual Audit and Inspection Letter


Statement of Accounts 2020


The external audit of the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2020 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, EY LLP, due to the late sign off of the 2018/19 audit in July 2020, and the need to secure a high quality audit team to deliver the 2019/20 audit.   This situation is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015. Therefore, this notification explains, as per paragraph (2a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2019/20 final statement of accounts in line with deadline of 30th November 2020, as per paragraph (1). The audit committee will consider the results of the 2019/20 audit at its meeting on 27th January 2021, after which we will publish the final audited accounts.

Every year the council publishes its accounts, listing all financial transactions for the past year.

The summary gives details of the council’s revenue and capital expenditure, the housing account, the council tax, business rates and also the balance sheet.
