Statement of Accounts and Annual Governance Statements

Publication of West Lindsey District Council’s Statement of Accounts and Audit Opinion

Due to late amendments, outside of the Council’s control, the Statement of Accounts for the year ended 31 March 2021 has not yet been completed and the external audit therefore, not concluded by Mazars LLP.

This situation is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (SI 2015/234), as amended by the Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2021 (SI 2021/263).

This notification explains, as per Regulation 10 (2) (a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2020/21 Statement of Accounts in line with publication date of 30 September 2021, as per Regulation 10 (1). The council is continuing to work closely with the external auditor to ensure the required work is completed as soon as possible. In line with the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015, West Lindsey District Council published a draft Statement of Accounts subject to audit on 1 July 2021 and the final audited Statement of Accounts for the year ended 31 March 2021 will be published as soon as the Governance and Audit Committee approve the Statements, and the Independent Auditor’s Report is issued.
