Update on 2020/2021 Draft Statement of Accounts
The external audit of the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2021 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, EY LLP, due to the Authority’s Annual Governance Statement and Financial Statements not being formally approved. This situation is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (See attached link: https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2015/234/regulation/10/made).
Therefore, this notification explains, as per paragraph (2a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2020/21 final statement of accounts in line with deadline of 30th September 2021, as per paragraph (1). The Audit and Governance Committee will consider the results of the 2021/21 audit at its meeting on 26th November 2021, after which we will publish the final audited accounts.
The final, unaudited accounts are available on the agenda for the 30th July 2021 Audit and Governance Committee (CMIS > Meetings)
