Local Council account auditing

Soon after 31 March each year, the previous year’s accounts must be prepared and submitted for audit.  A detailed inspection is carried out by an Internal Auditor – a local accountant appointed by the council.  The Annual Return, a summary of key figures compared with the previous year, is then submitted for an External Audit carried out on behalf of the Audit Commission.

The documents for the 2018/19 Annual Return can be downloaded via this link.
