2. Each year the smaller authority’s Annual Governance and Accountability
Return (AGAR) needs to be reviewed by an external auditor appointed by

it is subject to change as a result of that review.
Any person interested has the right to inspect and make copies of the
accounting records for the financial year to which the audit relates and all
books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers, receipts and other documents relating
to those records must be made available for inspection by any person
interested. For the year ended 31 March 2022, these documents will be available

3. Local government electors and their representatives also have:
 The opportunity to question the appointed auditor about the accounting
records; and
 The right to make an objection which concerns a matter in respect of which
the appointed auditor could either make a public interest report or apply to
the court for a declaration that an item of account is unlawful. Written notice
of an objection must first be given to the auditor and a copy sent to the
smaller authority.

The appointed auditor can be contacted at the address in paragraph 4 below for
this purpose between the above dates only.
