The annual statement of accounts

At the end of each financial year, we are required to produce an annual statement of accounts. This is a technical publication that includes all the financial statements and disclosures required by law.

External auditors are responsible for carrying out an audit of our annual statement of accounts and reporting whether, in their opinion, they present a "true and fair view" of the financial position of the Council. Their annual governance report summarises the principal matters arising from the audit.
