Transparency Code

Under the audit framework effective from 1st April 2017, established by the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014, parish councils such as Moulsoe with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000 are exempt from external audit. Instead we are subject to a Transparency Code to enable local electors to access the relevant information about our accounts and governance. It is a requirement to publish the following is information :-

  • End of year bank reconciliation
  • End of year accounts as set out in our annual return
  • An explanation of significant variances between the current year and the previous year
  • Annual governance statement as set out in our annual return
  • Internal audit report as set out in our annual return
  • Details of assets
  • A list of all items of expenditure above £100
  • List of Councillor responsibilities i.e. whether they are the chair, vice chair or member of the parish council
  • Minutes, agendas and papers of formal meetings

All these documents can be accessed via the links below.
