Governance & Accounting Returns 2020-21

Under the new audit framework smaller authorities, including parish councils, with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000 are exempt from routine external audit. In place of routine audit, these smaller authorities are subject to the new transparency requirements laid out in the Transparency Code. This will enable local electors and ratepayers to continue to be able to access relevant information about the authorities’ accounts and governance.

In 2020/21 Great Somerford was able to certify itself as exempt from external audit by PKF Littlejohn because both its income and expenditure were below the £25,000 threshold, it had been in existence prior to 1 April 2017 and there were no audit matters requiring attention notified in 2019/20.  It hereby publishes its Certificate of Exemption and Annual Governance and Accountability Returns, together with the other documents required under the Transparency Code
