FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING AND INFORMATION

FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Each year the Parish Council completes the Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) and conducts an internal audit of accounts.

Parishioners and interested persons have the right to view the accounts during a specified 30 day period each year which ordinarily must include, by law, the first 10 days of July. The ‘Public Inspection Period’ must be advertised on the Parish Notice Boards at least one day in advance.

Sapperton Parish Council has a turnover of less than £25,000 per year and as such is exempt from external audit. Instead, the Parish Council appoints an independent and competent internal auditor who assesses the compliance with relevant procedures and controls during the financial year using evidence provided by the Council.
