St Mary Bourne Parish Council
Annual Governance & Accountability
At the end of each financial year the parish council prepares an Annual Governance & Accountability Return (AGAR) which includes an Annual Governance Statement and Accounting Statements.
The latest Annual Governance & Accountability Return is for the year ended 31 March 2019. The audit has been completed and the accounts have been published. The AGAR is available for inspection by any local government elector of the parish.
The AGAR is subject to both an internal audit and an external audit.
The internal auditor is appointed by the parish council. Our current internal auditor is Lightatouch Internal Audit Services.
The last full year audit carried out was for the AGAR for the year ended 31 March 2019.
There has been an interim audit for the year ending 31 March 2020.
The external auditor is appointed by the Smaller Authorities Audit Appointments Ltd and our current external auditor is PKF Littlejohn LLP.
