Council review of internal auditor’s effectiveness agreed 3 August 2021 (Minute reference 3/8/21 10. b.)
The Council agreed to certify as Exempt from having a Limited Assurance Review by the External Auditor at the 5 May Parish Council meeting.
In order to comply with the Accounts and Audit Regulations, it is stipulated that the Parish Council must provide a scanned version of the Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR). Unfortunately, this is inaccessible to screen readers, so this Council has chosen to publish the full, but unsigned, AGAR (which is marginally better).
The documents required to be published as part of the Annual Governance and Accountability Return 2020/21 are:
- Certificate of Exemption (redacted)
- Annual Governance Statement (redacted)
- Accounting Statements (redacted)
- Internal Auditor Report (redacted)
- Significant Variances and Bank Reconciliation
The period for the exercise of public rights under the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 and Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 will be from Thursday 3 June until Wednesday 14 July (30 working days): Electors’ Rights Notice.
