PKF Littlejohns LLP, the government appointed external auditors have completed their review of the Annual Governance & Accountability Return (AGAR) for Edith Weston Parish Council for the year ended 31 March 2021. Please find the external auditor report and certificate (Section 3 of the AGAR Part 3) Parish Council Governance page of this website.

The external auditor report and certificate detail any matters arising from the review. The smaller authority must consider these matters and decide what, if any, action is required.

The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (SI 2015/234) as amended by the Accounts and Audit (Coronavirus) (Amendment) Regulations 2020 (SI 2020/404) set out what you must do at the conclusion of the review. In summary, you are required to:

  • Publish the "Notice" along with the certified AGAR (Sections 1, 2 & 3) before 30 September, which must include publication on the smaller authority's website.
  • Keep copies of the AGAR available for purchase by any person on payment of a reasonable sum.
