Note: The “AGAR”
All Parish Meetings in England are required to complete an AGAR. This comprises an Internal Audit Report, a Governance Statement and Accounting Statements. Any person has the right to inspect and make copies of the accounting records.
Parish Meetings where the higher of gross annual income or gross annual expenditure does not exceed £25,000 (as in the case of Selmeston) are able to declare themselves exempt from sending their AGAR for external audit by completing a Certificate of Exemption and sending this to the external auditor. The duly approved elements of the AGAR must then be published together with the Certificate of Exemption and displayed on the appropriate website or otherwise displayed in the local area.
