Council Financial Reporting

Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014

This sets out a new audit framework for local public authorities which are currently covered by the Audit Commission regime. Under the new audit framework smaller authorities, including parish councils, internal drainage boards, charter trustees and port health authorities, with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000 will be exempt from routine external audit. In place of routine audit, these smaller authorities will be subject to the new transparency requirements laid out in this Code. This will enable local electors and ratepayers to access relevant information about the authorities' accounts and governance. Such authorities should publish:

  • All items of expenditure above £100
  • End of year accounts
  • Annual governance statement
  • Internal audit report
  • List of councillor or member responsibilities
  • The details of public land and building assets
  • Minutes, agendas and meeting papers of formal meetings
