Annual Governance and Accountability Return for 2021-2022
Bitteswell with Bittesby Parish Council is required, to complete an Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR), setting out Accounting Statements and an Annual Governance Statement for each financial year. These statements and their supporting documentation are audited by the Council's Internal Auditor and sent to the External Auditor for a limited assurance review.
Each year the smaller authority's Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) needs to be reviewed by an external auditor appointed by Smaller Authorities' Audit Appointments Ltd. The unaudited AGAR has been published with the Notice of Date of Commencement Period for the Exercise of Public Rights. As it has yet to be reviewed by the appointed auditor, it is subject to change as a result of that review.
