Statement of Accounts 2022/23
Regulation 10 (1) of the Accounts and Audit (Wales) Regulations 2014 (as amended) requires Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority’s Responsible Finance Officer to sign and date the draft statement of accounts and certify that it presents a true and fair view of the financial position of the body at the end of the financial year to which it relates, and of that body's income and expenditure for that year. The Regulations require this to be completed by 31 May 2023.
This date will not be achieved and therefore, under Regulation 10 (4) of the Accounts and Audit (Wales) Regulations 2014 (as amended), I am declaring that, as the Responsible Finance Officer, I will not be signing the 2022-23 statement of accounts by 31 May 2023. This delay is due to a loss of key staff and corporate knowledge, which we have put interim arrangements and personnel in place, alongside a later audit timetable by Audit Wales this year.
I intend to sign the draft 2022-23 statement of accounts by 31 July 2023.
