The Committee received a report of the Corporate Director of Resources which provided information regarding the Final Accounts timetable for 2021/22. The timetable details the target dates for key actions in order to complete the Statement of Accounts in line with statutory deadlines (for copy see file of minutes).
Mr I Rudd referred to previous issues relating to Members declarations not being received and asked if anything had been done to solve the issue. The Finance Manager explained there was an issue with last years forms regarding former Members who were not standing for re-election. The Corporate Director of Resources highlighted that Members are reminded to have them completed by the deadline and any outstanding declarations would be raised with Group Leaders and that he didn’t expect this to be an issue for the 2021/22 reporting period.
That the report be noted.
