Statement of Accounts 2021/22 - Public Notice delayed audit

Notice of delayed audit 2021/22

The external audit of the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2022 has not yet been started by our 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 will not be able to publish our audited 2021/22 final statement of accounts in line with deadline of 30th November 2022, as per paragraph (1). The Audit Committee will consider the results of the 2021/22 audit at a future meeting once the audit is complete, after which we will publish the final audited accounts.
