Statement of accounts
Draft Statement of Accounts 2022/23 – Public Notice
This notice is published under Regulation 15(1A) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015.
The Council is required to make the accounting records and related documents of Braintree District Council available for inspection each year in the exercise of the rights of interested persons under Section 26 of the Local Audit & Accountability Act 2014 and Section 15 of the Accounts & Audit Regulations 2015.
The inspection period for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 was due to commence on 1st June 2023 and run for a period of 30 working days from this date. However, it is not possible for the Council to commence the inspection period as the Council continues to experience major audit delays with the audit of the Statement of Accounts 2019/20 and 2020/21 still to be concluded, and the audit of the Statement of Accounts 2021/22 has yet to commence. This is an unprecedented position for the Council, but it reflects a national and severe backlog of local authority audits and is not from any specific concerns about the Council.
As a result of the audit delays, the Section 151 Officer has concluded that it is not currently appropriate to make a statement that the 2022/23 Accounts provide a true and fair view of the Council’s financial position in the absence of the assurances that would arise from receiving the external auditor certification for the three previous financial years.
The period for public rights at audit will be commenced as soon as it is practicable to do so. However, in the interests of transparency, the Council has published an uncertified Draft Statement of Accounts 2022/23.
