Coronavirus: information and advice.

Annual Accounts

We prepare an annual statement of accounts to give electors, local taxpayers, members of the council and other interested parties clear information about our finances.

The statement summarises:

  • The cost of services we provide in the year
  • How those services were paid for
  • Our assets and liabilities at the year-end

The Accounts and Audit Regulations require the Council to publish its unaudited Statement of Accounts by 31 May following the end of the financial year, along with our draft Annual Governance Statement. The deadline for 2019/20 was deferred to 31st August 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Those documents can be downloaded using the links below.

The external audit of the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2020 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, EY LLP, due to resourcing constraints caused by staff sickness. This situation is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015. Therefore this notification explains, as per paragraph (2a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2019/20 final statement of accounts in line with the deadline of 30th November 2020, as per paragraph (1). The Audit & Standards Committee will consider the results of the 2019/20 audit at its meeting on 1st February 2021, after which we will publish the final audited accounts.
