Statement of Accounts

Bromsgrove District Council's financial year runs from April to March and following the end of each financial year it publishes an annual statement of accounts. The accounts are one of the means by which the Council demonstrates its stewardship of public money and they present the financial position of the Council as at 31 March each year. They are produced in the format stipulated by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) in accordance with best accounting practice.

Statements of Accounts 2019-20

The Accounts and Audit (Coronavirus)(Amendment) Regulations 2020 extend the statutory audit deadlines for 2019/20.

The requirement for the public inspection period to include the first 10 working days of June has been removed. Instead Local Authorities must commence the public inspection period on or before the first working day of September 2020. This means the draft accounts must be approved by 31 August 2020 at the latest. However they may be approved earlier.

The council will publish the dates of its public inspection period as soon as the draft 2019/20 statement of accounts has been approved.
