Statement of accounts

Each year councils publish Statements of Accounts. This sets out the Council's income and expenditure for the year, together with the financial position of the Council at the year-end. They show how public money has been spent.

Each year the Statement of Accounts is formally examined by external auditors.

Somerset West and Taunton is a newly created council so has no Statements of Account.

The area was previously administered by Taunton Deane Borough Council and West Somerset Council. You can see the Statements of Accounts for the former authorities.
