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 5 June and 14 July 2017. 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 2016 to 2017' sets out the details of the current inspection period and the procedures for making any objections.
The unaudited accounts and the annual governance statement were posted to this page on 2 June. They were replaced by the final, audited accounts at the conclusion of the audit, after their sign-off by the Audit and Accounts Committee on the 15 September. The appointed auditor's annual audit and inspection letter will be published when it becomes available.
The audit of the accounts for the year ending 31 March 2017 has been completed. A statement of the audited accounts, which includes a copy of the auditor's report, is open to the inspection of any local government elector for the area of Salford City Council at Swinton Civic Centre between the hours of 8.30am and 4.30pm from Monday to Friday.
Two objections to the accounts were received and they are being considered by the auditor, the auditor cannot issue the audit certificate until this matter has been considered fully. The website will be updated accordingly.
Any such local government elector may make a copy of the full document or any part of it. Copies of the entire document may be purchased at a cost of £30 per copy by written application to the corporate accountancy team at Salford Civic Centre or by email to email@example.com. Alternatively, it is available to download below. The council's annual governance statement is presented alongside the accounts.
