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

Delay in publishing the Statement of Accounts for 2021 to 2022

Under section 10 of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (and amended 2022), the Council is required to publish its draft un-audited annual Statement of Accounts by 31 July and begin a period for the exercise of public rights.

If the Statement of Accounts is not published by this date, then the Council must publish the reasons for this, as required under Section 10 of the regulations.

Reason for delay

The Council has experienced resourcing challenges in the technical accounting areas. This has been at an important time for producing the draft un-audited Statement of Accounts for 2021 to 2022.

The Council will publish the draft un-audited Statement of Accounts for 2021 to 2022 as soon as reasonably possible. The Governance Risk and Audit Committee Chair has been formally advised of this delay.

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.
