After the end of each financial year, the Council has to publish a formal set of accounts. This includes:
- a narrative report
- a statement of its income and expenditure for the year
- a statement showing the value of its assets at the end of the year
- a statement showing the movement in its cash balances
The Statement of Accounts have been compiled in accordance with the Local Authority Accounting Code of Practice in force at the time. The Statement of Accounts are subject to independent audit by an auditor appointed by Public Sector Appointments Limited from 1 April 2015, or the Audit Commission prior to 31 March 2015.
