Annual Governance and Accountability Returns
Each year the Council is required to complete and submit to its External Auditor, an Annual Governance and Accountability Return.
Annual Return – Previous Years
Once the return has been approved by the External Auditor, the audited version is published on the Council’s website below.
The Annual Return includes the Annual Governance Statement and Accounting Statements which have been subject to both Internal and External Audit. The Internal Audit was performed by the internal auditors who are appointed each year and the External Audit was performed by PKF Littlejohn LLP. The External Auditor’s Report and Certificate form part of the Annual Return.
