The Transparency Code

Langthorpe Parish Council Local Audit (Smaller Authorities) Regulations 2015

Notice to certify Langthorpe Parish Council as exempt authority

Langthorpe Parish Council declares the council’s gross income and gross expenditure for the financial year 2016/17 does not exceed £25,000. This qualifies the Parish Council to be covered by the Smaller Councils Transparency Code.

This means the Parish Council does not have to comply with the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2014 but instead, it will have to comply with the transparency code for smaller authorities.

The following information will be published annually, no later than the beginning of July:

All items of expenditure above £100 (Please see minutes from full Council meetings)

End of year accounts, annual governance statement and internal audit accompanied by bank reconciliation, explanation of significant variances and an explanation of any differences between ‘balances carried forward’. (Please see Annual Return 2016/17)

Council Minutes and the Annual Return can be seen on the Council Archive and Finance pages of this website, accessed via the left hand menu, or by contacting the Clerk on telephone – 07903 851419: Email
