Statement of accounts

The statement of accounts show and explain the council's financial position for a given year, bringing together expenditure and income on all of its services. They also include statements on the pension fund and other trust fund accounts.

The audit of the accounts for 2012/13 has now concluded and you can download a copy of the audited statement of accounts for 2012/13. You can also view the audited statement of accounts for earlier years through this link.

We are required to prepare an annual governance statement (AGS) to accompany the statement of accounts. This is published on the annual governance statement page.

Below is the formal  notice of conclusion of the audit, which sets out your rights to inspect the accounts.
