Finance and budgets - Annual Statement of Accounts and Audit Reports 2019/20

Audited Statement of Accounts 2019/20 - Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

The draft statement of Accounts for 2019/20 would normally be published by the 31 May 2020, with a period of public inspection following that date. However, in response to the coronavirus outbreak, the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has introduced the Accounts and Audit (Coronavirus) Amendments Regulation 2020 (SI 2020/404) for the Statement of Accounts 2019/20.

The requirement for the public inspection period to include the first ten working days in June has been removed. Instead local authorities must commence the public inspection period on or before the first working day of September 2020. This means that draft accounts must be approved by 31 August 2020. The publication date for audited accounts has moved from 31 July to 30 November 2020 for all local authority bodies.

Bassetlaw District Council intends to publish its unaudited Statement of Accounts on Friday 12 June 2020. The period for the exercise of public rights would then commence at 9am on the 15 June 2020 and conclude at 4pm on the 24 July 2020.

Details of its availability are contained in the Public Inspection Notice.
