As a result of the Coronavirus crisis the publication date for final, audited, Statement of Accounts for 2019/20 has been moved from 31st July to 30th November 2020 for all local authority bodies.
However the audit of the Financial Statements is yet to be concluded for entities that form part of the Authority’s group and therefore the Authority is unable to meet this publication date. The final audited accounts will be published as soon as reasonably practicable after the receipt of the report from the auditors containing the auditor’s final findings
The deadline for the publication of the draft Statement of Accounts was 31st August 2020 and these were published prior to this deadline and can be found through the links below.
Sections 25 and 26 of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 provide local government electors with the right to inspect and make copies of the statement of accounts, accounting records and all documents relating to those records, for the financial year ended 31 March 2020.
Details of its availability are contained in the Public Inspection Notice
