Annual Accounts – 2018/2019
Each year, town and parish councils have to produce a summary of their accounts, along with a statement which demonstrates that there is adequate governance and control in place. This is provided in the form of the Council’s Annual Governance and Accountability Return which is then submitted to an external auditor for evaluation. The external auditor is appointed by the Audit Commission, for St Ives Town Council they are PKF Littlejohn LLP and further information about the external auditor and their procedures can be found at www.pkf-littlejohn.com
The Annual Governance and Accountability Return is available for inspection by any elector in the town council parish area, or their representative. It may be inspected on application to Louise Dowe, Town Clerk and Responsible Finance Officer at The Guildhall, Street An Pol, St Ives, Cornwall between 9.30am and 2.30pm on Mondays to Fridays.
