2019/20 financial information

Newton St Loe Parish Council has certified itself as exempt from external audit for 2019/20. It follows that the external auditor will not be reporting on the Annual Governance and Accountability Return (‘AGAR’) for 2019/20.

The AGAR consists of Section 1, the Annual Governance Statement, and Section 2, the Annual Accounting Statements. Additional documents are published under the requirements of the Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities.

Annual Governance Statement 2019-20

Note: members have not been able to consider the recommendations of the internal auditor in 2019 regarding revisions to the risk assessment. It follows that members answered ‘NO’ to two assertions in the Annual Governance Statement.
