The Statement of Accounts provides all the financial information and disclosure notes relating to each financial year

Notice of delay in publishing the Statement of Accounts for 2022 to 2023

The Accounts and Audit (England) Regulations 2015 – Regulation 10, as amended by The Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2021 and the Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2022.

The Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2022 require that the audited accounts and opinions are published by 30 September 2023. Under the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015, Regulation 10, paragraph (2a), this is a notification that there will be a delay in the publication of the Council’s audited Statement of Accounts and will not meet the deadline of 30 September 2023.

Reason for delay

The external audit of the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2023 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, EY LLP, due to the complex set of factors contributing to audit delays across the sector. This situation is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015. Therefore, this notification explains, as per paragraph (2a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2022/23 final statement of accounts in line with deadline of 30th September 2023, as per paragraph (1). The Governance, Risk and Audit Committee will consider the results of the 2022/23 audit, after which we will publish the final audited accounts.

Statement of Accounts

Notice of public inspection of accounts for 2020 to 2021

There is a requirement for all Councils to publish their Statement of Accounts each financial year. The accounts are a key financial document and give a detailed overview of the Council's income and expenditure during the financial year as well as providing a record of the assets and liabilities at the year end.

The Accounts are prepared in accordance with the Code of Practice on Local Authority Accounting in the United Kingdom issued by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA). Within the statements below you will find all the financial information and disclosure notes relating to North Norfolk District Council for the relevant financial period.

The maintenance and integrity of the North Norfolk District Council website is the responsibility of the Council; the work carried out by the auditors does not involve consideration of these matters and, accordingly, the auditors accept no responsibility for any changes that may have occurred to the financial statements since they were initially presented on the website.

Legislation in the United Kingdom governing the preparation and dissemination of financial statements may differ from legislation in other jurisdictions.
