The 2022/2023 Draft Statement of Accounts for Caerphilly County Borough Council are being prepared in accordance with the relevant CIPFA Accounting Codes of Practice, Accounting Standards and Statutory provisions. However, these Accounts have not been completed and certified by the Responsible Finance Officer by 31 May 2023 and therefore the following notice is required in compliance with section 10(4) of the Accounts and Audit (Wales) Regulations 2014:

  • Following the Covid-19 pandemic and infrastructure asset audit issues raised in 2021/22, there has been some disruption in the standard accounts preparation timetable for a number of years.  Consequently, the Responsible Finance Officer has not signed and certified the accounts for the year ended 31 March 2023.
  • The Authority intends to complete preparation of the Draft Statement of Accounts by 31 July 2023. At this point the Responsible Finance Officer will consider the requirement to sign and certify the Accounts in compliance with the relevant regulations.
  • Further to completion, the Draft Accounts will be subject to public inspection and external audit as required by the Accounts & Audit (Wales) Regulations and the Public Audit Wales Act.
