LWPM Year-End Accounts - Revised Audit and Publication Dates

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation, we have been advised that the dates for auditing and publication of year-end financial accounts has been deferred. Little Wolford Parish Meeting's (LWPM) accounts are normally internally-audited in April each year, and available for public inspection in June for 30 working days.  Final regulations are due to be made the week commencing 6 April which will extend the statutory audit deadlines for 2019/20.

 It is proposed that:

  • The publication date for final, audited, accounts for local councils will move from 30 September to 30 November 2020
  • The requirement for the public inspection period to include the first 10 working days of July has been removed. Instead, local councils must commence the public inspection period on or before the first working day of September 2020

Draft accounts must be approved by 31 August 2020 at the latest, or earlier where possible. Authorities must publish the dates of their public inspection period this year.

LWPM will provide an update once the audit and public inspection dates have been confirmed.
