Approval of the audited statement of accounts for 2019-2020 – Middlesbrough Council
The external audit of the Council’s draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2020 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, EY LLP, due to the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic and remote working.
This situation is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015, as amended by the Accounts and Audit (Coronavirus) (Amendment) Regulations 2020 No. 404.
Therefore this notification explains, as per paragraph (2a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2019/20 final statement of accounts in line with deadline of 30 November 2020, as per paragraph (1).
The Corporate Affairs and Audit Committee considered the provisional results of the 2019/20 audit at its meeting on 26 November 2020, and approved the financial statements subject to resolution of the outstanding matters noted in the auditor’s report and no subsequent material changes to the financial statements. A copy of the Audited Accounts will be placed on the website once the external audit is complete.
