STATEMENT OF ACCOUNTS 2020/21

NOTICE OF DELAY IN PUBLISHING AUDITED STATEMENT OF ACCOUNTS

The external audit of the draft Statement of Accounts for the year ended 31 March 2021 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, Deloitte LLP, due to the prior year audit not yet being completed.

This situation is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (SI 2015/234), as amended by the Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2021 (SI 2021/263).

This notification explains, as per Regulation 10 (2) (a), that Wiltshire Council are not yet able to publish our audited 2020/21 Statement of Accounts in line with publication date of 30 September 2021, as per Regulation 10 (1). The Council is continuing to work closely with the external auditor to ensure the required work is completed as soon as possible.

A separate notice (issued under Regulation 15, paragraph (1a) of the Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2021) has previously been published on our website explaining that our draft 2020/21 Statement of Accounts was not available for public inspection by the first working day of August as required by the Regulation 10 paragraph (1) of the Accounts and Audit regulations 2015. A further notice will be published in due course setting out the public inspection period once the draft 2020/21 Statement of Accounts have been finalised.

The final audited Statement of Accounts for the year ended 31 March 2021 will be published as soon as the audit is concluded, and the Independent Auditor's Report issued.

Councils must produce an annual Statement of Accounts in accordance with legislative requirements and the Code of Practice on Local Authority Accounting in the UK.

Late Publication Inspection Notice (Word doc) [13KB] (opens new window)

Notice of late publication for public inspection

The Council's draft 2020/21 Statement of Accounts will not be available for public inspection by the deadline of 1 August 2021 as required by the Regulation 10 paragraph (1) of the Accounts and Audit regulations 2015 as amended by The Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2021. We have not been able to complete the draft Statement of Accounts due to the demand on staff time resolving external audit queries which have caused a delay in the approval and publication of the 2019/20 Statement of Accounts, coupled with the added demand and work priority on Council staff in supporting the Councils response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A further notice will be published in due course setting out the public inspection period once the draft 2020/21 Statement of Accounts have been finalised.

This notice is issued under Regulation 15, paragraph (1a) of the Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2021.

Audit of accounts 2019/20 - Notice of late publication

The Council's final statement of accounts will not be published by the required deadline of 30 November 2020 as required by the Regulation 10 paragraph (1) of the Accounts and Audit regulations 2015 as amended by The Accounts and Audit (Coronavirus) (Amendment) Regulations 2020. Our external auditors, Deloitte LLP, were unable to complete their audit due to an unresolved query with the historical balance on the revaluation reserve and capital adjustment account, which caused a delay in the approval and publication of the 2018/19 Statement of Accounts, coupled with the added demand and work priority on Council staff in supporting the Councils response to the COVID-19 pandemic emergency.

This notice is issued under Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015.

The Council's Audit Committee will consider the results of the 2019/20 audit at a future meeting following the conclusion of the external audit, after which the final audited accounts will be published.
