At the end of each financial year the Parish Council appoints an independent person to conduct an 'Internal Audit'. For the audit, several primary documents are prepared.
Smaller authorities, such as Glapthorn, must publish various documents on a public website as required by the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015, the Local Audit (Smaller Authorities) Regulations 2015 and the Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities.
The documents for the year ending 31st March 2018 are:

Appointments Ltd. The unaudited AGAR has been published on this website.
Any person interested has the right to inspect and make copies of the accounting records for the financial year to which the audit relates and all books, deeds, contracts, bills,
vouchers, receipts and other documents relating to those records must be made available for inspection by any person interested. Please see the FULL NOTICE for details.
