Financial performance and statement of accounts

The audited statement of accounts 2020/21 for Elmbridge Borough Council is now available.  Cllr Alex Coomes, Chairperson Audit & Standards Committee, is very grateful to the team involved for their hard work and diligence. 

"The Audit of Elmbridge Borough Council’s accounts for 2020/2021 has been signed off by Auditors Grant Thornton without qualification and was ratified by the Audit and Standards Committee meeting held this week." 

"Under the circumstances I feel it is important to recognise all the hard work that went into achieving this, Elmbridge being only the second council in Surrey to get their accounts signed off for this financial year." 

"As a consequence of the pandemic the majority of the work was carried out remotely. However Grant Thornton have not in any way lowered the bar for compliance so I would like to congratulate and thank all the officers involved in the scrutiny process with the team being led by Andrew Cooper, Head of Finance." 

"Auditing is not the glamorous part of accounting and auditors are often overlooked when the headlines are written but they are essential in all organisations to show that everything is being done correctly and, most importantly for Elmbridge’s residents, that public monies are being spent and accounted for in the proper manner."
