AUDIT

Every year the Council is required to put its accounts through the audit process. This consists of an auditor appointed by the Council checking the accounts and procedures of the Council, and ensuring that appropriate financial safety precautions are identified and followed. Once the auditor, and subsequently the Council, have approved the accounts they are sent to the external auditor. Currently the auditor for Hampshire Parish Councils is BDO LLP. They are sent the completed audit forms in June and they then make their own assessment of the Council's financial controls. When they have completed this assessment they inform the Council of their decision, and of any problems the Council needs to correct.

The latest full audit, as well as the most recent internal audit and response from the Parish Council are in the links at the top of the page. Also there are the dates for the period of "Elector's Rights" and a link to the external auditor's website.
