Shropshire and Wrekin Fire Rescue Authority: Completion of Audit

The audit of the Authority’s financial statements for the year ending 31 March 2022 has been completed and the auditor’s report is contained within the Statement of Accounts.

The certificate of completion of the audit has not been issued because:

  • Grant Thornton are required to issue a report on the Authority’s arrangements for securing economy, efficiency and effectiveness in its use of resources. This work has not been completed because Grant Thornton have applied the special provisions in the National Audit Office’s guidance for auditors (in Auditor Guidance Note 03) and will be completing this work to a later timescale. It is planned to complete this work and issue the Auditor’s Annual Report by 31 March 2022 as permitted under the special provisions in AGN 03; and
  • The audit cannot formally be concluded and the audit certificate issued until work has been completed to issue the Whole of Government Accounts (WGA) Component Assurance statement for the year ended 31 March 2022

Please note that Regulation 16(1) of The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 requires the Authority to publish (which must include publication on its website) a statement:

  • that the audit has been concluded
  • that the statement of accounts has 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.

As the audit has not yet been concluded, the Authority cannot yet issue this statement.
