Each year the Town Council’s accounts for the period 1 April to 31 March in the following year are subject to ‘internal’ and then ‘external’ audit.
The external auditor (PKF Littlejohn LLP) has undertaken the external audit of the accounts for the year ending 31 March 2020 and has found the accounts in accordance with proper practices and no other matters have come to their attention giving cause for concern that relevant legislation and regulatory requirements have not been met.
The Council is now required to:
- Prepare a “Notice of conclusion of audit” which details the rights of inspection, in line with the statutory requirements.
- Publish the “Notice” along with the certified AGAR (Sections 1, 2 & 3) before 30 November,
- Keep copies of the AGAR available for purchase by any person on payment of a reasonable sum (there will be no charge).
- Ensure that Sections 1, 2 and 3 of the published AGAR remain available for public access for a period of not less than 5 years from the date of publication.
The notice has now been published on this website and can be accessed from the home page menu via Documents – Audit Documents.
