Statement of Accounts

All local authorities have to publish accounts in a form specified by Government regulation. They show in broad summary the sources of finance and the services on which it has been spent.

Hillingdon produces a formal Statement of Accounts which is set out in the form required by Accounts and Audit Regulations.

The accounts have to be produced by 31 May and passed for audit each year for the financial year ending the previous 31 March; a draft version is made available on this website at this time.  The audited accounts have to be approved by a committee of the council by 31 July.  Once approved by the council's Audit Committee they are placed on this page.

Every year the accounts are open for inspection by the public prior to the completion of audit for a period of 30 working days. Local electors can inspect them and ask questions. Details of the open days for inspection are advertised on this website before the first 'open' day. Full details of this process are set out below.

External Audit is currently undertaken at Hillingdon by Ernst and Young.

This information is also available in large print, Braille and on audio tape.
