Statement of Accounts 2021/22


The draft Statement of Accounts for 2021/22 would normally be published by 31 May 2021, with a period of public inspection including the first 10 working days of June.

However, the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) have put in place revised regulations that again extend the statutory audit deadlines for 2021/22 for local authorities (The Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2021). The requirement for the public inspection period to include the first ten working days in June has been removed, instead local authorities must commence the public inspection period on or before the first working day of August 2022. This means that draft accounts must be approved by the responsible finance officer and be published by 31 July 2022. The publication date for audited accounts has moved from 31 July to 30 September 2022 for all local authority bodies. DLUHC are intending to introduce secondary legislation to extend this deadline to 30 November 2022 for the 2021/22 Accounts.

Harborough District Council has published its unaudited Statement of Accounts on Wednesday 6 July 2022. The period for the exercise of public rights will then commence at 9am on Thursday 7 July 2022 and conclude at 4pm on Wednesday 20 July 2022.

Details of its availability are contained in the Public Inspection Notice.
