Budget / Precept for 2016/2017

An apology from the external auditors;

To: Diane Jacob <>, SBA <>

Dear Ms Jacob

Thank you for your email. We can confirm that the ‘other matter’ raised in our external auditor report has been raised in error, for which we apologise. The capital reserves can not be used to reduce the precept demand and can only be used for future capital projects. This fact was overlooked in the email communication between our team and you. 

Please display a copy of this email alongside our report for clarification. This has no impact on the ‘except for’ qualification matter raised, which is still relevant.  

Once again we apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

Kind regards 

SBA Team

For and on behalf of

PKF Littlejohn LLP
