Audit of Statement of Accounts 2021/22

The external audit for the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2022 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, EY LLP, due to audit timetabling.

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 2021/22 final statement of accounts in line with the deadline of 30 November 2022, as per paragraph (1).

The audit commitee will consider the results of the 2021/22 audit in 2023 after which we will publish the final audited accounts.

Auditor’s Annual Report (AAR) 2021/22
