What we spend and how we spend it

Annual accounts

Last updated September 2023

Each year we have to produce a set of accounts. The formal document is the Statement of Accounts which sets out the financial aspects of our activities and draws attention to the main characteristics of our financial position.

The accounts are currently audited by Grant Thornton UK LLP. The audit of the 2022-23 accounts has been completed by the statutory deadline of 30 September 2023. The statement of accounts is published below. 

The Chief Financial Officer is responsible for the preparation of the statement of accounts in accordance with the Code of Practice of Local Authority Accounting in the United Kingdom.
