LASAAC Responds to the English Redmond Review

LASAAC has submitted a written response to the Redmond Review, which is considering the English arrangements for local government financial reporting and audit.

The response notes LASAAC’s role in CIPFA/LASAAC which is responsible for developing the Code of Practice on Local Authority Accounting; the adaptation of IFRS standards for local government;  the importance of the management commentary (narrative reporting) in interpreting and explaining the financial information provided; and CIPFA/LASAAC’s strategy to improve financial reporting for users of the accounts.
