POSTPONMENT NOTICE

AUDITED ACCOUNTS FOR THE PERIOD FROM 1APRIL 2019 TO 31 MARCH 2020

The Local Authority Accounts (Scotland) Regulations 2014 require local government bodies to meet to consider the audited accounts with an aim to approve those accounts for signature no later than 30th September and for those audited accounts to be published on the website of the authority. Argyll and Bute Council has decided to postpone complying with this duty as it would impede the Council’s ability to take effective action to prevent, protect against, delay or otherwise control the incidence or transmission of coronavirus. This decision has been made using powers contained in the Coronavirus (Scotland) Act 2020.

The audited accounts will be published as soon as reasonably practicable. The council in conjunction with Audit Scotland will aim to complete the audit process and approve the accounts for signature as soon as reasonably practicable.
