Internal audit is a key component of the system of internal control. Its purpose is to review whether the systems of financial control and other controls over the activities of the council are adequate, effective, and in line with current regulations. Internal audit does not actively seek evidence of fraud, corruption, error or mistakes, but can assist the council in its responsibility for the prevention and detection of such occurrences.
The Internal Auditor is independent of the operations (financial control/management) of the Council and competent in the understanding of the law as applicable to Local Councils, of simple accounting and basic PAYE and VAT requirements.
Ilkley Parish Council has appointed Mrs Diane Brown as its Internal Auditor.
The scope of the internal audit is reviewed annual and agreed by the Council. For 2016/17 the scope of the internal audit is as follows:
