Statement of accounts and audit reports

We produce Statement of Accounts detailing how the money was spent by us for the financial year. This is accompanied by the external auditor’s report.  

The external audit report expresses an opinion on whether the financial statements give a true and fair view of the financial position of us, our expenditure, and income for the year then ended; and have been prepared properly in accordance with the CIPFA/LASAAC Code of Practice on Local Authority Accounting in the United Kingdom.
