Draft Statement of Accounts 2020/21

The Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2021 extend the statutory audit deadlines for 2020/21. The requirement for the public inspection period to include the first 10 working days of June has been removed, instead local authorities must commence the public inspection period on or before the first working day of August 2021. This means the draft accounts must be approved and published by 31st July 2021 at the latest.  However Mid Devon District Council has chosen to published earlier.

Our public inspection period will run from 5th July to 13th August 2021, as set out in this letter:

Appointment of External Auditor

Under Section 8(2) of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014, the Council must publish a notice relating to the appointment of its local auditor.

For audits of accounts from 1 April 2018, Public Sector Audit Appointments Limited (PSAA) is responsible for appointing an auditor to principal local government and police bodies that have chosen to opt into its national auditor appointment arrangements. Mid Devon District Council opted into this arrangement.

On 14 December 2017, the PSAA board approved the appointment of Grant Thornton (UK) LLP to audit the accounts of Mid Devon District Council for a period of five years, covering the accounts from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2023. This appointment is made under Regulation 13 of the Local Audit (Appointing Person) Regulations 2015.
