HSCP audited accounts
An update on the planned inspection and publication date
Part 10 of The Local Authority Accounts (Scotland) Regulations 2014 requires local government bodies to meet to consider the audited accounts with an aim to approve those accounts for signature no later than 30th September.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, some flexibility is provided within the Coronavirus (Scotland) Act 2020 and, as a result of remote working rendering the audit process more complex, a slight extension is necessary.
It is the intention of East Renfrewshire Integration Joint Board that the annual report and accounts will be inspected and presented to the Integration Joint Board for approval by 30th November 2021 and published by 31st December 2021.
This statement is published in accordance with paragraphs 8(4) and 10(2) of the Coronavirus (Scotland) Act 2020, which require any decision to postpone publication of its audited accounts to be made public on or before the date by which the report is due, or as soon as reasonably practicable after this date.'
