The Audit has been concluded and the Statement of Accounts has been published (Annual Return or the audit summary report) for the year ended 31 March 2016.
There is a right of inspection conferred on Local Government Electors by Section 25 of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014. Documents can be inspected at the address of the Clerk during working hours by appointment or can be found online.
The Parish Council felt that the report of the internal auditor was unfounded and provided a response to the external auditor which was accepted.
The opinion of the external auditor is that “On the basis of our review of the annual return, in our opinion the information in the annual return is in accordance with proper practices and no matters have come to our attention giving cause for concern that relevant legislation and regulatory requirements have not been met.”
