Statement of accounts
The availability of the accounts and supporting documents for inspection is advertised before the audit begins.
After the audit has been completed, the auditor sends an annual audit and inspection letter to us which contains their findings, drawing elected members' attention to any matters which they feel they should be made aware of.
The external auditors provided an unmodified opinion on our 2020/21 statement of accounts, however, the certificate of conclusion of the audit is delayed until the value for money and government’s whole of government accounts process is available and related assurances completed. The auditors annual report will be published here when this work has been complete.
The rights of individuals to inspect the accounts are described by the National Audit Office.
