The internal auditor is an independent and competent person appointed by the council to carry out checks on its system of internal control. The internal auditor carries out tests focusing on areas of risk and after reporting to the council, signs a report on the annual return (required by law) to confirm that the council’s system of controls is in place and operating. These annual returns and the accounts they're based on are listed in this section.

 

The budget is an essential tool for controlling the council’s finances. It demonstrates that the council will have sufficient income to carry out its activities and policies. By checking spending against budget plans on a regular basis at council meetings, the council controls its finances during the year so that it can confidently make progress towards what it wants to achieve.

 

 This section contains documents such as risk and asset registers.
