Statement of Accounts 2021-22
The Council has been unable to commence the period of public inspection for the 2021/22 statement of accounts by the first working day in August 2022. Following on from this this, there is also a delay in the commencement of the audit and the publication of the audited accounts of the year ended 31 March 2022.
Due partly to the global Covid-19 pandemic, there has been a delay in the conclusion of the audit of the annual accounts for 2019/20, primarily related to uncertainties over the valuation of the authority’s property assets and the extended consultation on Infrastructure asset reporting. This delay has in turn impacted on the ability of officers to finalise the accounts for both 2020/21 and 2021/22.
As soon as the 2021/22 draft statement of accounts are available, these will be published with revised inspection dates. The audited statement of accounts will follow as soon possible.
