The audit regime changes in April next year and for smaller Councils (less than £25K budget) in particular the reliance on internal auditors will be much more important with the ability to opt out of external auditing. To address this concern we are looking for a number of clerks and councillors to put their name forward to become a WALC approved auditor.
Anyone interested should state their reasons for getting involved and what skills and experience they can bring.
We will arrange detailed training and then will promote the service across our members. there will be a set fee for the audit based on the size of the Council and the auditors will be paid that fee less 10% admin fee for WALC.
Please bring this to the attention of your councillors and we would like expressions of interest by September.
if there are any questions please get in touch and we will be pleased to help.
