Governance & Accounting Returns 2018-19

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 2018-19 Great Somerford certified itself as exempt from external audit by PKF Littlejohn but, in accordance with the Code, it hereby publishes:

1. Certificate of exemption
2. AGAR Section 1 Annual Governance Statement
3. AGAR Section 2 Accounting Statements
4. Annual Internal Audit report
5. Bank reconciliation
6. Explanation of Variances
7. Expenditure over £100
8. Fixed Asset schedule
9. CIL Report
