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

Notice of public inspection of accounts for 2018/2019

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.

North Norfolk District Council Audit of Accounts: year ended 31 March 2019

Publication of statement of accounts, annual governance statement and narrative statement. The Accounts and Audit (England) Regulations 2015 – Regulation 10

The external audit of the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2019 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, EY LLP, due to an ongoing discussion about the accounting treatment for the Council’s investments in pooled funds under the new accounting standard (IFRS 9). 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 2018/19 final statement of accounts in line with deadline of 31st July 2019, as per paragraph (1). The Governance, Risk and Audit Committee will consider the results of the 2018/19 audit at its meeting on 10th September after which we will publish the final audited accounts.
