Audit 2018

There are major changes to the requirements for smaller authorities for the 2017/18 reporting season.

The main change to the requirements of the regime relate to those smaller authorities who are eligible to exempt themselves from our review.  Although there is no change at all to the requirements for all smaller authorities to complete and approve an Annual Return, now known as the Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR), and provide for public rights, exempt authorities must meet a number of specified criteria and then provided those criteria are satisfied they only need submit a copy of their exemption certificate to us.  The exemption criteria are met if the smaller authority can declare that it has:

–  Total gross income* and total gross expenditure below £25K; and
–  No public interest report/statutory recommendation/advisory notice/judicial review/application to court re unlawful item of account issued by its external auditor** in the prior year; and
–  Been in existence since before 1/4/14.

* Please note that total gross income includes all income received during the year, e.g. precept or rates & levies, grants, loans, community infrastructure levy (CIL), VAT refunds, donations, fees & charges, etc.
** Please note that where the external auditor has only raised ‘except for’ or ‘other’ matters for the 2016/17 reporting year this does not preclude a smaller authority from certifying itself exempt from review.
