Audit appointments

Auditor appointments for smaller authorities for the five financial years from 2017/18 to 2021/22

On 30 November 2016 SAAA announced the conclusion of its procurement process and the award of limited assurance review contracts for five years to the successful external audit firms. Responsibilities under the new contracts will relate to accounts for the financial year beginning on 1 April 2017. Further details of the specific appointments by County area for opted-in authorities are detailed below.

Any authority that considers it may have a potential conflict of interest with their appointed external auditor that may affect auditor independence should contact SAAA.


2016/17 Audit arrangements

It is important to note that for the financial year 2016/17 there are no changes to your existing audit arrangements and you should continue to work with your existing auditors on limited assurance reviews for accounts for the financial year 1 April 2016-31 March 2017.

The new appointments only become effective for the five year period in relation to accounts for the financial year beginning on 1 April 2017. All matters relating to the financial year 2016-17, including the Annual Return for the year 2016-17, should still be sent to your current external auditor. A list of the current appointed external auditor for individual authorities can be found on the PSAA website at http://www.psaa.co.uk/appointing-auditors.
