Audit of accounts for year ended 31 March 2019

Each year the council's accounts are audited externally.

The appointed auditor for the year ended 31 March 2019 is Andrew Brittain of Ernst and Young LLP, Apex Plaza, Forbury Road, Reading, RG1 1YE.

Audit progress 

Our external auditors, EY LLP,  have not yet completed the external audit of the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2019.

This is because of a technical accounting issue related to the valuation of property, plant and equipment (PPE) valuations, which has delayed the accounts receiving an audit opinion.

This situation is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015. Therefore, this notification explains, as per paragraph (2a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2018/19 final statement of accounts in line with deadline of 31 July 2019, as per paragraph (1).

The Licensing, Audit and General Purposes Committee will consider the final results of the 2018/19 audit at its meeting on 23 September, after which we will publish the final audited accounts.

An unaudited pdf icon Revised draft statement of accounts and annual governance statement 2018-19 [3Mb] was presented at Licensing, Audit and General Purposes Committee on 29 July.
