3. Statement of accounts

The Statement of Accounts brings together in summary form our financial transactions. The reporting period is for twelve months to 31st March. Currently, we are required to publish a draft annual Statement of Accounts by 31st May. These draft accounts are subject to independent audit.

The draft accounts are also available for public inspection and questions may be asked of the independent auditor. Details regarding this process are published in the public notices section of this website between May and July. The final audited accounts are approved by Audit Committee and should have been approved and published by 31st July but due to the continuing impact of COVID-19 this was not completed until September 2021.
