The external audit of the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2023 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, EY LLP. The draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2023 was published by the required 31 May 2023 deadline, and the external audit began in July 2023. EY LLP subsequently stopped the external audit in August 2023 due to the complex set of factors contributing to audit delays across the sector.
The situation of an external audit not being completed by the deadline is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015). Therefore, this notification explains, as per paragraph (2a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2022/23 final statement of accounts in line with deadline of 30th September 2023, as per paragraph (1). The audit committee will consider the results of the 2022/23 audit, after which we will publish the final audited accounts.
Our Draft Statement of Accounts for 2022/23 has been prepared in accordance with the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 and the Code of Practice on Local Authority in the United Kingdom 2022/23. The code is based on International Financial Reporting standards (IFRS) and statutory requirements.

Appointment of Auditor
Notice of appointment of auditor to Hertfordshire County Council from 2018-19.
Under Section 8(2) of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014, the Council must publish a notice relating to the appointment of its auditor.
For audits of the accounts from 2018-19, the Council has opted into national auditor appointment arrangements with Public Sector Audit Appointments (PSAA), who are now responsible for appointing the Council’s External Auditor.
The PSSA wrote to the Council to consult on the proposed appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as the External Auditor of Hertfordshire County Council from 2018-19. We can now confirm that, following the completion of the consultation, Ernst & Young LLP have been appointed to audit the accounts of Hertfordshire County Council for five years, from 2018-19 to 2022-23.
This appointment is made under regulation 13 of the Local Audit (Appointing Person) Regulations 2015, and was approved by the PSAA Board at its meeting on 14 December 2017.
