The Council considered whether or not to certify as Exempt from having a Limited Assurance Review by the External Auditor at the 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 in an accessible format.
The documents required to be published as part of the Annual Governance and Accountability Return 2019/20 will be:
- Full AGAR – accessible (but unsigned) version
- Certificate of Exemption – redacted version
- Internal Auditor Report – redacted version
- Annual Governance Statement – redacted version
- Accounting Statements – redacted version
- 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 3rd June to 14 July 2021 (30 working days): Notice of Public Rights and Publication
However, due to the current circumstances, if anyone would like to view the documents after 24 July, this will, of course, be possible.
All the information will be published when available after the year end on 31 March 2020
