Public Inspection of the Draft 2021 to 2022 Statement of Accounts

After being approved by the Responsible Financial Officer as a true and fair view, draft accounts are placed "on deposit" online for 30 working days. This is so local electors can inspect them, ask questions about them or challenge them (see a guide to your rights).

The public inspection period for the 2021/2022 Statement of Accounts was held from Tuesday 21 June 2022 to Monday 1 August 2022 and has now concluded.

See documents relating to the 2021/2022 Statement of Accounts:

The annual audit process

Over the autumn our external auditors will conduct a full and detailed examination of the draft accounts, after which they issue their accounts audit letter and audit certificate to confirm that the accounts give a true and fair view. Once this is received, the Annual Governance Committee will approve the final audited accounts in November and the council will publish them.

Our Statement of Accounts shows the income and expenditure for the financial year and our financial position at the end of the period. It is compiled and presented in accordance with the Accounting Code of Practice and satisfies all legislative requirements.
