Annual Financial Report
The Council’s Annual Financial Report provides the audited statutory disclosure of financial information. The format complies with the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accounting (CIPFA) Code of Practice. The 2021/22 Financial report included below is unaudited. Under regulations 10 of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (as amended), the council is required to publish the audited Statement of Accounts on or before 30th November 2022, the council has been unable to meet this requirement because the audit has not been finished. The audited 2021/22 Annual Financial Report will be published on this webpage when the audit is concluded later this year. See attached letter from Ernst & Young LLP explaining the delay to the Auditor’s Annual Report.
