Council Budgets & Spending

Brentwood Borough Council strives to provide high quality, efficient and value for money services and seeks continuous improvement in service delivery to meet the needs of the community.

 

Brentwood Borough Council

Delay to the publication of the Statement of Accounts for 2019/20

The Accounts & Audit Regulations 2015 as amended by the Accounts & Audit (Coronavirus) (Amendment) Regulations 2020

The external audit of the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2020 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, EY LLP. This is due to the work required from the Council to update its going concern disclosures and supporting assessment at the date of the auditors’ report, and the need for EY LLP to conclude their quality assurance and professional practice consultations on the Council’s going concern disclosure and their final audit report.

This situation is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015, as amended by the Accounts and Audit (Coronavirus) (Amendment) Regulations 2020 No. 404.  See the following links: Legislation.gov.uk-regulation 10 and Legislation.gov.uk-regulation 2

This notification explains, as per Regulation 10 paragraph (2a), that the Council is not yet able to publish its audited 2019/20 final statement of accounts in line with publication date of 30th November 2020, as per paragraph (1).

The Audit and Scrutiny Committee received EYs LLP's audit results report for their 2019/20 audit and the Council’s updated financial statements at its meeting on 24th November 2020. The Committee agreed delegated arrangements to receive and approve the final audited accounts for publication subject to there being no material amendments and matters arising with the financial statements once the auditors have issued their final audit report.
