Notification of delay of publication of Draft 2022-23 Statement of Accounts
Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 and the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015, the council has not been able to publish the draft Statement of Accounts for the year ended 31 March 2023 by the 31st of May which is the statutory deadline.
The delay in publishing the 2022-23 draft Statement of Accounts is as a result of the delayed completion of the audit for the Statement of Accounts for 2021-22, which has delayed subsequent work on the 2022-23 draft Statement of Accounts and prevents the publication of draft account of appropriate quality.
The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 can be viewed on legislation.gov.uk
The council’s draft accounts for 2022-23 will be published as soon as reasonably practicable.
