At the end of each financial year (March) we are required by law to produce a Statement of Accounts. This is essentially a technical publication which provides a true and fair view of our financial position, and our income and expenditure for the year.

It includes all the financial statements and disclosure notes required by law and these are reviewed by our external auditors. The key statements included are:

  • Movement in Reserves
  • Comprehensive Income and Expenditure Account
  • Balance Sheet
  • Cash Flow Statement
  • Key notes to the Core Financial Statements
  • Housing Revenue Account Income and Expenditure Account
  • Collection Fund

You can view previous years' Statement of Accounts and Annual Governance statements in the 'Statement of Accounts Archive'.
