Internal and External Audit

Each year the Parish Council’s Year End Accounts are audited by an Internal Auditor whose report is available to download here: InternalAuditReport1819

The Parish Council also publishes an Annual Governance and Accounting Statement which is externally audited because either payments or receipts exceed £25,000.  The Annual Governance and Accounting Statement 2018/19 is available to download here:  AGAR18_19   explanation of variances 18_19  Bank Reconciliation 20190331  

These documents are currently with the external auditors and are therefore published subject to the outcomes of that external audit process.

Public Right to Inspect Accounts 18/19 – please see statement of rights  ExerciseofRights18_19 which explains the rights and the process (including time frames) for inspecting accounts.
