External auditor

When the Council has redacted its accounts, they need to be audited and signed off by an external auditor. This is undertaken by private institutions that are appointed to each Council by the PSAA. The accounting firms that have been currently assigned contracts are:

  • Ernst & Young LLP
  • Grant Thornton UK LLP
  • Mazars LLP

To find out who your external auditor is, you can either:

  • ask the council directly
  • see if the information is available on your council’s website
  • find the information on the PSAA website: http://www.psaa.co.uk/appointing-auditors/
