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 unaudited Annual Return for 2016/17 has been published with this notice.  As it has yet to be reviewed by the appointed auditor, it is subject to change as a result of that review.

Any person interested has the right to inspect and make copies of the accounting records for the financial year to which the audit relates and all books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers, receipts and other documents relating to those records must be made available for inspection by any person interested. Please see the links below for more information.
