Notice of appointment of auditor to Salford City Council from 2018/19

Under Section 8(2) of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014, the council must publish a notice relating to the appointment of its auditor. 

For audits of the accounts from 2018/19, Public Sector Audit Appointments Limited (PSAA) is responsible for appointing an auditor to principal local government and police bodies that have chosen to opt into its national auditor appointment arrangements. Salford City Council opted into this arrangement.

At its meeting in December 2017, the PSAA Board appointed Mazars LLP to audit the accounts of Salford City Council for a period of five years, for the accounts from 2018/19 to 2022/23. This appointment is made under regulation 13 of the Local Audit (Appointing Person) Regulations 2015.

Salford Council Audit of Accounts year ended 31 March 2020

Inspection of accounts 2019 to 2020 (notice of public rights)

There is a formal 30 working day statutory period wherein any person may inspect the unaudited accounts and supporting documents. For this purpose, you may not inspect documents that are not relevant to the accounts or are otherwise legally protected, nor may you inspect documents that contain personal information about a member of staff.

The formal inspection period is between 20 July and 28 August 2020. However, we will normally try to assist Salford residents with an explanation of the accounts at any other time. During this period a local government elector for any area to which the accounts relate, or their representative may question the auditor about the accounts.

The downloadable document 'Public rights notice 2019 to 2020' sets out the details of the current inspection period and the procedures for making any objections.
