Statement of accounts

The government has extended the deadlines for us to publish our draft statement of accounts and the associated inspection. You can read the full notice.

Our auditors have concluded the audit of our accounts for 2018-19

We have to publish a statement of accounts annually, for each financial year. 

The preparation and publication of the statement has to follow statutory requirements and timescales.


Draft statement of accounts 

Following the end of our financial year on 31 March, we will publish a draft of the statement of accounts. We are required to do so by 31 August 2020. (The government have extended the usual deadline of 31 May.)


External audit of the accounts 

An independent auditor will conduct an audit of the draft statement during August and September. This has been pushed back from the normal timeframe of June and July.


Public inspection of the accounts 

There will be a period of public inspection following publication of the draft statement of accounts when members of the public could apply to: 

  • inspect and make copies of the accounts and documents 
  • ask the auditor questions about the accounts


Publication of the final report

Once the auditor has concluded their audit, we will publish the final statement of accounts and make the statement available for inspection. 

As of 14 December 2017, BDO LLP are acting as Chelmsford City Council's external auditors from 2018/19.
