Bourton-on-the-Water Parish Council
Independent External Auditors (IEA) are appointed to audit the accounts of all Parish & Town Councils. The deadline for submission of the accounts to the IEA is at present 1st June in each year. At the end of the financial year (namely, 31st March) the Parish Council therefore closes its accounts and prepares the necessary paperwork for approval by Council at the May meeting, prior to submission to the IEA during May.
As part of this process, Parish and Town Councils are required to appoint their own Independent Internal Auditor who will inspect and approve the Council’s financial systems and accounts before these are submitted for external inspection. This inspection takes place during the financial year with a final verification at the year end.
The Accounts for 2015-16 have been approved by Council and externally audited by Grant Thornton. The Council is also required to publish its annual accounts for the previous 2 years. The Accounts for the past 2 years are therefore available by clicking on the links below.
The Accounts for 2016-17 have now been audited by the external auditor, Grant Thornton, and are displayed below.
