Audited 2021/22 Statement of Accounts

The audit of the 2021-22 financial statements has been completed and the audit option is included within the published financial statements.

The audit however has not yet been concluded and therefore the certificate of completion has not yet been issued, as per the following statement from our auditors, Grant Thornton.

We are required to issue a report on the Council's arrangements for securing economy, efficiency and effectiveness in its use of resources. We have not completed this work because we have applied the special provisions in the National Audit Office's guidance for auditors (in Auditor Guidance Note 03) and will be completing this work to a later timescale. We plan to complete this work and issue our Auditor's Annual Report by 31 December 2023, which is within three months of the date of the opinion on the financial statements, as permitted under the special provisions in AGN 03.
