The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 require smaller authorities, each financial year, to conduct a review of the effectiveness of the system of internal control and prepare an annual governance statement, now known as the Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) or more commonly called the Annual Return, in accordance with proper practices in relation to accounts.
The AGAR comprises the following sections:
1. Certificate of Exemption – from external audit
2. Annual Internal Audit Report
3. Annual Governance Statement
4. Accounting Statement
The Parish Council’s Annual Governance Statement for the current financial year is shown below. The current year is based upon the payments made and receipts received to date.

The List Length
The document list is initially displayed with the first 10 entries visible. The Show Entries drop-down selection box, above and to the left of the document list, may be used to show more (or less) entries at a time. The number of list entries currently shown and the total number of entries in the full list is displayed below the document list.
The Previous, Page No. and Next buttons below the document list may be used to navigate between the list pages if not all the list entries are shown at once.
The List Length and Pagination work together. Changing the List Length as above changes the number of pages accordingly.
Note that if the total number of documents in the list is less than 10, neither the List Length selection box or the Pagination buttons are displayed.
The documents are initially listed in a pre-defined order. The list order may be changed by selecting either the ID or Document Name column headings. The up/down arrow on the right side of the colum heading indicates the current sort direction. Selecting the column heading again reverses the sort order.
Note that changing the sort direction affects all the documents in the list, not just those that may be currently visible. When changing the sort order, the list is re-displayed from the first page if the list is currently paginated.
