Audit of accounts year ended 31 March 2022
Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015, Regulation 15(2) b and Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2022
Notice of rights in relation to the statement of accounts of Richmondshire District Council for the financial year ended 31 March 2022.
Rights to inspect the statement of accounts and accounting records
Sections 25 and 26 of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 (‘the Act’) provide local government electors and journalists with the right to inspect and make copies of the statement of accounts, accounting records and all documents relating to those records, for the financial year ended 31 March 2022.
At present, the Council has not been able to publish its draft accounts and commence the period for the exercise of public rights. This is due to other work pressures.
The period of public inspection will commence in due course for the statutory 30 day period. Notice will be given when the accounts have been published, which is likely to be in August 2022.
