The Transparency Code was introduced within the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 which sets out a new audit framework for local public authorities which are currently covered by the Audit Commission regime. Under the new audit framework smaller authorities with an annual turnover not exceeding £25000* will be exempt from routine external audit. In place of routine audit, smaller authorities will be subject to the new Transparency Code requirements. The information below complies with the required publication of information under the Transparency code (enacted March 2015 to take effect wef 1.4.15).
- The turnover for the parish council, year ended 2016/17 exceeds £25k so although we did not need to publish this information for the 2016/17 accounts we decided that it would demonstrate good governance together with our willingness to be open and transparent. We do not expect our turnover to exceed £25k every year.
