Audit of accounts – public notice

During the audit process anyone has the right to inspect our accounts (including books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers and receipts) and to put questions to the auditor.

After the audit is finished the auditor will issue a certificate of completion, however for 2020/21 Grant Thornton are not yet able to issue this as there are a number of areas of work still ongoing in respect of:

  • the Council’s arrangements for securing economy, efficiency and effectiveness in its use of resources
  • the consistency of the pension fund financial statements of the Council included in the Pension Fund Annual Report with the pension fund financial statements included in the statement of accounts
  • Whole of Government Accounts (WGA) Component Assurance statement for the year ended 31 March 2021
