Audit of Statement of Accounts 2022/23 and Auditor's Annual Report (AAR) 2022/23

The external audit of the statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2023 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, EY LLP, due to the complex set of factors contributing to audit delays across the sector.

This situation is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015. Therefore, this notification explains, as per paragraph (2a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2022/23 final statement of accounts in line with deadline of 30th September 2023, as per paragraph (1). The audit committee will consider the results of the 2022/23 audit, after which we will publish the final audited accounts. Under the 2020 Code of Audit Practice, for Local Government bodies, the Council's external auditors Ernst & Young LLP are required to issue the Auditor’s Annual Report (AAR) by 30 September or, where this is not possible, issue an audit letter setting out the reasons for delay.

See the audit letter from Ernst & Young LLP.
