Statement of accounts

The annual statement of accounts (the accounts) shows details of the costs of providing the Council’s services and information about the Council’s assets and liabilities.  

The Council’s accounts (including those of Norfolk Pension Fund) for 2016-17 were approved by Audit Committee on 21 September 2017.  The audit of the accounts was completed by 27 September, and the audit certificate was issued on 27 September 2017.

Copies of the accounts for the previous six years are shown below.

The Council also produces a summary of the main accounts which presents the main statements in a simpler format, although the figures are consistent in both statements.

Norfolk County Council Annual Audit Letter

Following the signing of the Statement of Accounts and the conclusion of the annual audit, our external auditors write an Annual Audit Letter to the Council. The letter summarises the findings of the auditors and formally concludes the audit.

Any rights of objection, inspection and questioning of the local auditor may only be exercised within a single period of 30 working days commencing on the day following the signing of the draft unaudited accounts and for 2016-17 must include the first 10 working days in July.
