The Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 sets out an audit framework for local public authorities which are covered by the Audit Commission regime.
Under the audit framework smaller authorities, including parish councils with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000, are exempt from routine external audit but instead are subject to the transparency requirements laid out in the
“Transparency code for smaller authorities“.
This enables local electors and ratepayers to access relevant information about the authorities’ accounts and governance.
As an authority with neither income nor expenditure exceeding £25,000 Uley PC must ensure that an Annual Governance and Accountability Return 2018/19 (Part 2) is completed and posted on its website before July 1st 2019. The Return is available below.
The data and information specified in the Transparency Code must be published on a website which is publicly accessible free of charge. Follow the links below to view the relevant information for the last complete financial year:
