PKF Littlejohn External Auditor Webinar

Published 21st March 2019

PKF Littlejohn, the external auditors to the majority of local councils in England have recorded a training webinar which updates listeners with the main changes for the 2018/19 year end and cover some of the areas that caused common errors or misunderstandings in 2017/18.

You can access the webinar on their website here (and via YouTube with the above title). The slides including speaker notes are also available on the website.

For this webinar, there is no interactive question and answer session; however, any questions arising from the webinar can be emailed to the auditors at sba@pkf-littlejohn.com and they will include any frequently asked questions and answers on our website as they did last year.

It is important to note, especially for any new clerks, that the PowerPoint slides from the 2017/18 detailed webinar will remain available on their website, amended for any significant changes. The 2017/18 slides cover the following areas:

  • Introduction to the PKF Littlejohn team
  • Overview of our approach to the limited assurance reviews
  • Common issues that arose during 2016/17
  • The Annual Governance and Accountability Returns and Exemption Certificates that were new to 2017/18
  • Other aspects of the 2017/18 approach to our reviews
The 2018/19 instructions, final 2018/19 AGAR forms and our pro forma templates will be available on the PKF website for the week commencing 25 March. Instruction emails will be sent out to all clerks during that week in batches over a 2 day period. Those smaller authorities that are selected for intermediate level testing as part of the up to 5% sample will receive an additional email confirming that point. (NB: Smaller authorities with gross income or expenditure totalling more than £200k are automatically subject to intermediate level testing and will not receive an additional email.)
