Notice of Delay to Publication of the Financial Statements for year ending 31 March 2023

For 2022/23, the statutory deadline for publication of draft accounts has reverted to 31st May 2023, from the 31st July date which applied for 2021/22. The council was unable to meet this statutory deadline as the draft statement of accounts was not ready for publication. Factors contributing to the delay include the cumulative impact of the ongoing audit of accounts from 2021/22 and the 2022 Lincolnshire Pension Fund Triennial Valuation. Following publication the accounts will be made available for public inspection, along with the supporting accounting records and associated documents for 30 working days.

Our auditors Mazars have asked for the following statement to be published on the website.

The external audit of the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2023 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, Mazars LLP, due to the complex set of factors contributing to audit delays across the sector. This situation is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015. (See attached link: The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (legislation.gov.uk)). Therefore, this notification explains, as per paragraph (2a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2022/23 final statement of accounts in line with deadline of 30th September 2023, as per paragraph (1). The Audit and Governance Committee will consider the results of the 2022/23 audit, after which we will publish the final audited accounts.
