On the 7th April 2020 the government issued SI 2020/404 The Accounts and Audit (Coronavirus) (Amendment) Regulations 2020.
These regulations amend the deadline by which the Annual Governance Statement and Statement of Accounts together with any certificate or opinion issued by the auditor must be published from 31 July 2020 to 30 September 2020. Previously there was a requirement for all authorities to have a common period for the exercise of public rights, being the first 10 working days of June.
Under the new regulations there is no requirement for a common period for the exercise of public rights. We are still required to set a period for this purpose, but the only requirement is that the 30 working day period for the exercise of public rights should start on or before the first working day of September, that is on or before 1 September 2020.
The period for the public inspection of South Lakeland District Councils accounts is Monday 29th June 2020 until Monday 10th August 2020.
