Each year the operating procedures and processes of the parish council, along with all financial documentation is subjected to an Internal and an External audit. Although classed as “internal” this audit is conducted by an experienced auditor who is independent of the parish council. On completion of this audit and the adoption of all reports by full council, the reports are submitted to an external auditor for final approval. Once the reports are compiled there is a specified period (30 working days) when the reports are available for public scrutiny. At this point the reports are classed as unaudited. Notification of the public viewing period will be posted on this website and the parish notice boards.
This year the internal auditor is IAC audit and consultancy Ltd based in Swindon and the external auditor is Grant Thornton based in Bristol.
