Transparency Code

Transparency Code
Under a new audit framework effective from 1st April 2017, established by the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014, parish councils such as Moulsoe with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000 will be exempt from external audit. Instead we will be subject to a Transparency Code to enable local electors to access the relevant information about our accounts and governance.

The information which we must publish is as follows:-

  • A list of all items of expenditure above £100
  • End of year accounts as set out in our annual return
  • End of year bank reconciliation
  • An explanation of significant variances between the current year and the previous year
  • Annual governance statement as set out in our annual return
  • Internal audit report as set out in our annual return
  • List of Councillor responsibilities i.e. whether they are the chair, vice chair or member of the parish council
  • Details of public land and building assets
  • Minutes, agendas and papers of formal meetings

All these documents can be accessed via the links below.
