Statement of Accounts

The Statement of Accounts are the council's published audited accounts which summarise the income and expenditure for a particular financial year, showing the position at 31st March.

The contents are entirely prescribed by statute, subject to audit by auditors appointed by the Audit Commission and published annually.

The salaries of the chief executive and senior staff ('remuneration' of employees earning £50,000 or more) are included in the Statements of Accounts below - search (Ctrl F) for the word 'remuneration' in the documents below (see also Senior Management structurecouncillors'/members' allowances and open data).

Due to new Accounts and Audit regulations, from 2015/16 onwards, Adur & Worthing Councils are no longer required to produce a Joint Statement of Accounts.

However, both councils must produce their Statement of Accounts accompanied by a declaration signed by the responsible financial officer. This declaration is attached below with the two sets of Statement of Accounts.

Further information regarding the Statement of Accounts may be obtained by contacting the chief accountant.

Each year Adur District Council and Worthing Borough Council are subject to audit by external auditors appointed by the Audit Commission. The extent of the audit is determined by statute. It is a requirement that the Annual Audit Letter is published. You can also find these below.
