Annual Governance & Accountability Return (AGAR)

The Local Audit & Accountability Act 2014 and the Accounts & Audit Regulations 2015 set out the responsibilities of all local councils in respect of their accounting and auditing procedures.

Each year, the Council’s financial accounts and statements must be examined by an independent internal auditor appointed by the Council. For the year 2021/22 this is the Suffolk Association of Local Councils (SALC). 

The Council is also required to complete an Annual Governance & Accountability Return (AGAR) which includes the findings of the Internal Auditor, together with Governance Statements and Financial Statements. The AGAR is then submitted to the independent external auditor appointed by the Audit Commission for examination.

Year Ending 31st March 2022

The Council’s Financial Statements and Annual Governance & Accountability Return (AGAR) submission for the year-ending 31st March 2022 has been checked by SALC and subsequently approved by the Full Council at its meeting held on Tuesday 17th May 2022. 

The completed AGAR, together with the relevant supporting documentation, has now been approved by the external auditor, PKF Littlejohn LLP who are required to complete their review by 30th September 2022. The audited accounts be seen below in the 'Annual Return' folder.
