Policy consultation: Transparency code

The Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 sets out a new audit framework for local public authorities which are currently covered by the Audit Commission regime. Under the new framework local councils with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000 will be exempt from routine external audit. They will be subject to the new transparency requirements laid out in the draft Code.

This consultation asks questions on the content and application of a draft audit-substitute transparency code for local councils.

Statement of responsibilities of auditors and audited bodies

The Audit Commission (the Commission) is responsible for appointing auditors and determining their terms of appointment, as well as for preparing a Code of Audit Practice, which prescribes the way in which auditors are to carry out their functions. The Commission has prepared a Code for the audits of local government bodies and a Code for the audit of local NHS bodies. From time to time, the Commission issues guidance to auditors under section 3(8) of the Audit Commission Act 1998 (the Act) and paragraph 7 of Schedule 1 to the Act. This statement sets out guidance on general responsibilities relevant to audits in both sectors and so supports each Code
