Delayed Publication of Audited 2020/21 Statement of Accounts
The external audit of the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2021 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, EY LLP, due to rescheduling of the audit. This situation is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015. (See http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2015/234/regulation/10/made). Therefore, this notification explains, as per paragraph (2a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2020/21 final statement of accounts in line with a deadline of 30th September 2021, as per paragraph (1). The Joint Audit, Risk and Assurance Committee will consider the results of the 2020/21 audit at its meeting on 31 March 2022, after which we will publish the final audited accounts.
