Statement of Accounts
The functions of the West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) were transferred by Parliamentary Order, to the elected Mayor of West Yorkshire with effect from 10th May 2021. The transfer of the PCC functions to the Elected Mayor means that the legal entity known as the West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner ceased to exist as of 10 May 2021. All properties, rights and liabilities (including contracts of employment) transferred to the West Yorkshire Combined Authority on 10 May 2021. To fulfil these statutory requirements the Chief Constable’s accounts are consolidated into the accounts of the Combined Authority forming part of the Group Accounts.
For ease of access, all Statement of Accounts relating to the PCC's time in office are also below.

Police and Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire
Delay in publishing the Audit Certificate – Year Ended 9 May 2021
The external audit of the Statement of Accounts for the year ended 9 May 2021 has been completed by our external auditors, Grant Thornton UK LLP. The Independent Auditors Report has been issued. An unqualified opinion has been issued.
Under Regulation 16 (1) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015, the Police and Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire (the ‘PCC’) is required to publish (which must include publication on its website) a statement:
- that the audit has been concluded
- that the Statement of Accounts have been published
- of the rights of inspection conferred in local government electors by section 25 of the Act and the address at which, and the hours during which, those rights may be exercised
The audit cannot be formally concluded at this time, nor an audit certificate issued, until work had been completed relating to outstanding assurance work in respect of the Whole of Government Accounts (WGA) process and the subsequent requirement to issue the WGA Component Assurance statement for the year ended 9 May 2021. This links into the national delays in respect of the 2020/21 WGA process, which are not controlled by the PCC.
As the audit has not yet concluded, the PCC cannot therefore issue the Conclusion of Audit Statement at this time, but this will be actioned at the earliest opportunity once the formal audit procedures have been completed.
