The Annual Return has now been replaced by the AGAR (Annual Governance and Accountability Return.) The accounts continue to be audited by the Internal Auditor but as the Parish Council has neither income nor expenditure over £25,000 it has certified the council as exempt from a limited assurance review under Section 9 of the Local Audit (Smaller Authorities) Regulations 2015.
