Annual Governance & Accountability Return (AGAR) 2020 - 2021

The Accounts & Audit Regulations 2015 sets out the responsibilities of all local councils in respect of their accounting and auditing procedures.

Each year, the Council's financial accounts and statements must be examined by an independent internal auditor appointed by the Council. For the year 2020/21 this was CKH Accounts.

The Council is required to complete an Annual Governance & Accountability Return (AGAR) which includes the findings of the Internal Auditor, together with Governance Statements and Financial Statements. The AGAR is then submitted to the Independent external auditor (PKF Littlejohn LLP) appointed by the Audit Commission for examination.

A 'Notice of Public Rights and Publication of the Unaudited AGAR has been published, stating that any person interested has a right to inspect and make copies of the accounting records for the 2020-2021 Financial Year. This period of inspection runs until the 23rd July 2021.

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, the complete report has been uploaded on to the Finance page to make it easier to view. If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contract the Clerk.

A 'Notice of Conclusion of Audit' along with the External Auditor Report and Certificate will be published upon receipt but no later than 30th September 2021.
