Audited Statement of Accounts 2021-2022

In addition to issuing an audit report on the Statement of Accounts, the external auditor is required to issue a report on the Council’s arrangements for securing economy, efficiency and effectiveness in its use of resources.

This work has not yet been completed. The Council’s external auditor has applied the Covid-19 - special provisions in the National Audit Office’s guidance for auditors (in Auditor Guidance Note 03) and will be completing this work to a later timescale.

The auditor has indicated that they expect to complete this work and issue their Auditor’s Annual Report by 31 March 2023, which is within three months of the date of the opinion on the financial statements, as permitted under the special provisions in AGN 03. 

To support the audit of the Whole of Government Accounts (WGA), the Council’s auditor is also required to review and report on the WGA return prepared by the Council. This work has also not yet been completed.

As a consequence of this, and the work yet to be completed in relation to the Council’s arrangements for securing economy, efficiency and effectiveness in its use of resources, the Council’s external auditor, Grant Thornton UK LLP, has not yet issued their certificate of completion of the audit.

As soon as reasonably practicable after the conclusion of an audit, regulation 16(1) of The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 requires the Council to publish (which must include publication on its website) a statement:

  • That the audit has been concluded
  • That the statement of accounts has been published
  • Of the rights of inspection conferred in local government electors by section 25 of the Act and the address at which, and the hours during which, those rights may be exercised.

As the audit has not yet been concluded, the Council cannot yet issue this statement.
