We have completed our review of the Annual Governance & Accountability Return (AGAR) for Thursby Parish Council for the year ended 31 March 2018. Please find the external auditor report and certificate (Section 3 of the AGAR Part 3) included for your attention as another attachment to the email containing this letter along with a copy of Sections 1 and 2, on which our report is based.

The external auditor report and certificate detail any matters arising from the review. The smaller authority must consider these matters and decide what, if any, action is required.
Action you are required to take at the conclusion of the review The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (SI 2015/234) set out what you must do at the conclusion of the review. In summary, you are required to:  Prepare a “Notice of conclusion of audit” which details the rights of inspection, in line with the statutory requirements. We attach a pro forma notice you may use for this purpose.  Publish the “Notice” along with the certified AGAR (Sections 1, 2 & 3) before 30 September, which must include publication on the smaller authority’s website.  Keep copies of the AGAR available for purchase by any person on payment of a reasonable sum.  Ensure that Sections 1, 2 and 3 of the published AGAR remain available for public access for a period
