Each year the smaller authorities Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) needs to be reviewed by an appointed External Auditor.  For Hertsmere this is PFK Littlejohn LLP.

As South Mimms Clerk also acts as the Responsible Finance Officer, SMPC appoints an independent and qualified Internal Auditor every year to sign off on our sub-mission.  This is to ensure transparency and independence. 

All residents have the right to right to question the Internal Auditor and this can be arranged by emailing the clerk.    Audited Accounts and signed AGAR forms are uploaded to the Parish Councils website every year once accepted by the External Auditor so are always thus available for the public.
