Statement of accounts for year ending 31 March 2022 

The external audit of the draft statement of accounts for the year ending 31 March 2022 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, EY LLP.  This is due to their planned phased approach to delivering the 2021/22 audits in light of a variety of complex factors contributing to audit delays in previous years. This situation is allowed by Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015. For more information, visit – Accounts and audit regulations 2015. This notification explains, as per Regulation 10 paragraph (2a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2021/22 final statement of accounts in line with publication date of 30 November 2022, as per paragraph (1).

The Audit & Scrutiny Committee will consider the results of the 2021/22 audit at a meeting in 2023 (date to be determined) after which we will publish the final audited accounts.
