External Audit of Accounts: Year ended 31 March 2022

Publication of Staffordshire County Council Statement of Accounts and Audit Opinion

The audit of the draft Statement of Accounts for the year ended 31 March 2022 has not yet been completed by the external auditors, EY LLP, due to the planned phased approach to delivering the 2021/22 audits in light of a variety of complex factors contributing to audit delays in previous years.

This situation is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015.

Therefore, this notification explains, as per paragraph (2a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2021/22 final statement of accounts in the line with the deadline of 30 November 2022, as per paragraph (1).

The Audit and Standards Committee will consider the final results of the 2021/22 audit, after which we will publish the final audited accounts.

We are always looking to improve the content and format of the statement of accounts. We would welcome your comments on how the accounts and explanatory information could be improved in future.
