Kirtlington Parish Council (KPC) produces an end-of-year financial statement for the Annual Parish meeting which is held in April or May. This shows the breakdown of expenditure and income.
The Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR, commonly known as the Annual Return) is the formal accounting document for each financial year. It has to be checked by an internal auditor then filed with a government appointed external auditor (the accountants Moore Stephens) who issue their audit certificate at the end of the summer. Parishioners have a right to inspect the AGAR/Annual Return for a short period.
AGAR (Annual Governance & Accountability Return) 2019-2020: the unaudited (not audited by the External Auditor, Moore) AGAR will be received and approved at the Parish Council meeting of 14th July 2020; the unaudited AGAR includes the completed Internal Audit and can be viewed here:
