Each year, we produce a Statement of Accounts. The Statement of Accounts provides information about costs and income of the council's services for the financial year and liabilities and assets at the year end.
The 2018-19 Draft (unaudited) Statement of Accounts are available below and will be audited by the Council’s external auditors, Grant Thornton, over June and July 2019. Consequently, the draft Statement of Accounts may be subject to change.
The Statement of Accounts includes the Narrative Report.
The draft unaudited Annual Governance Statement is also found below. This has yet to be adopted by the Council and will be prior to the end of the Audit.
