Exercise of Public Rights for the audit of the financial year ending 31st March 2021

The Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 and the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 require that the accounting records for the financial year to which an audit relates and all books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers, receipts and other documents relating to those records must be made available for inspection by any person interested, during a period of 30 working days. For the financial year ending 31st March 2021 the Parish Council has determined that this period will run from 14th June 2021 to 23rd July 2021.

(i) the period for the exercise of public rights;

(ii) details of the manner in which notice should be given of an intention to inspect the accounting records and other documents;
