Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR), also known as the Annual Return
The Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 and the Accounts & Audit Regulations 2015 set out the responsibilities of all local councils in respect of their accounting and auditing procedures.
Each year the Town Council’s financial accounts and statements must be examined by an independent internal auditor appointed by the Council. (Reports are published on the Internal Auditor’s page.)
The Council is also required to complete an Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) which includes the findings of the Internal Auditor, together with Governance Statements and Financial Statements. The AGAR is then submitted to the independent external auditor appointed by the Audit Commission for examination. Edenbridge Town Council’s appointed external auditor is PKF Littlejohn LLP.

The Council also produces an Annual Report which includes a summary of the Council’s income and expenditure (and is available on the Annual Report page).
