Annual accounts

Guildford Borough Council Audit of Accounts Year Ended 31 March 2021 

The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015

The Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2021

It is usual for the Draft Statement of Accounts to be placed on to the Council's website on 31 May and be available for inspection during June and half of July.

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has put in place revised regulations that came into force on 31 March 2021. The Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2021 extend the statutory audit deadlines for 2020-21 and 2021-22 for all local authorities.

The publication date for audited accounts has moved from 31 July to 30 September 2021 for all local authority bodies.

As a result of the revised statutory deadlines, the requirement for the public inspection period to include the first 10 working days of June has been removed. Instead, local authorities must start the public inspection period on or before the first working day of August 2021. This means that accounts must be confirmed by the responsible finance officer (RFO) and be published by 31 July 2021 at the latest.

The council has been unable to commence the statutory period for public inspection of the council's accounting records for the financial year ended 31 March 2021 by the first working day in August as required by paragraph 15 of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (as amended). This is due to technical issues with the production of the accounts and the impact of the COVID19 pandemic.

The council will give notice as soon as reasonably practicability, as to when the accounts of Guildford Borough Council, in respect of the financial year ended 31 March 2021, will be available for public inspection.

Claire Morris,
Director of Resources and Chief Financial Officer
Dated 31st July 2021
