Statement of accounts

Each year we publish our statement of accounts. This includes all of the financial statements and disclosures required by law and is published each year in line with the statutory reporting deadline of 31 May for the draft accounts and 31 July for the full audited accounts.

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) put back the reporting dates from 31 May 2020 to 31 August 2020 for the 2019/20 draft accounts and from 31 July 2020 to 30 November 2020 for the full audited 2019/20 accounts.

The audit of the 2019/20 accounts has now been completed and notice has been given. The auditors have given their formal opinion on the accounts by way of an annual audit letter.

The Museums' collections development policy provides additional information about the heritage assets described within the statement of accounts.
