EXTERNAL AUDIT OF ACCOUNTS: PERIOD ENDED 9 MAY 2021
Publication of the Statement of Accounts and Audit Opinion
The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 – Regulation 10, as amended by The Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2021
The audit of the draft statement of accounts for the period ended 9 May 2021 for The Police and Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire Group, Police and Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable has not yet been completed by the external auditors, Grant Thornton UK LLP. The Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2021 require that the audited accounts and opinion are published by 30 September 2021.
The delay has arisen due to a combination of factors, comprising the following:
- the impact of Covid-19 on both the complexity of the audit and pace at which it can be completed.
- the inherent complexity of the Authority’s 2020/21 statement of accounts which covers the revised year-end.
- the increased assurance work that auditors are required to carry out nationally with respect to pensions and asset valuations.
The Authority is continuing to work closely with the audit team as they complete their work. In line with the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015, the Authority has published a set of draft accounts on their website. The Authority will publish a final set of accounts as soon as the audit is concluded, and the Audit Report is issued.
This notice of delayed audit is being published in accordance with Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015.
