Annual Accountability Returns
The accounts for Lyneham and Bradenstoke Parish Council are independently audited and inspected by Auditing Solutions Ltd (www.councilaudit.co.uk).
The internal audits are undertaken twice a year and include ensuring correct financial accounting and governance procedures are complied with. If any shortfalls are identified these are recorded and the Parish Council are made aware. They then prepare a report for the end of year accounts for the external auditors. This is recorded on the Annual Governance and Accountability Report (AGAR)
Currently, the end of year AGAR is then submitted to the government appointed external auditors who are PKF Littlejohn (www.pkf-littlejohn.com) and are then opened to public examination.
