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 2017-18 Statement of Accounts have now been audited by the Council’s external auditors, KPMG. The audited Statement of Accounts was approved for issues by the Audit Committee on 24 July 2018, alongside the Annual Governance Statement that accompanies the Statement of Accounts. The Narrative Report is contained with the Statement of Accounts.
The Statement of Accounts and Annual Governance Statement can be downloaded below.
