Finance and budgets - Annual Statement of Accounts and Audit Reports 2018/19

Audited Statement of Accounts 2018/19

Each year the Council is statutorily required to produce a Statement of Accounts.  This document sets out a summary of our financial affairs and performance.  It also provides information relating to the Council’s assets and liabilities at the end of the financial year, the cost of the services provided by the Council and the way in which these services were financed. 

The audit of the Council's statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2019 was concluded on 29 July 2019 and an unqualified audit opinion has been issued.  On the same date the auditors also issued an unqualified conclusion on the arrangements the Council has in place for securing value for money.  

The Statement of Accounts contains the core financial statements and explanatory notes to the accounts which when combined provide the statutory accounts. Included in the accounts is a Narrative Report, this provides an overview of the accounts and an analysis of the development and performance of the Council both within the financial year and its position as the year end.

The statement of accounts also includes the Annual Governance Statement which is a statutory document that outlines the Council’s governance and internal control arrangements.
