Statement of accounts

These provide information on our income and expenditure over recent years and balances at the year-end points.

Our accounts are prepared in accordance with the accounting conventions which apply to all local authorities.

We have statutory responsibility to prepare accounts that present accurately and fairly our operations during the year. This must be done in accordance with The Code of Practice on Local Authority Accounting in the United Kingdom: Statement of Recommended Practice (the code) (CIPFA/LASAAC). In accordance with the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015, the draft accounts must be issued by the end of May and the audited version published before the end of September each year.

Audit of accounts

The audit of the 2019-20 Statement of Accounts is still ongoing.  The auditors have not been able to issue their opinion on the Statement of Accounts by the revised 30 November 2020 deadline due to ongoing resourcing issues. This means that the 2020-21, 2021-22 and 2022-23 audits cannot be undertaken until the auditors have completed their audit of the 2019-20 Statements.
