Protecting the public purse

Individual certification fees

Indicative fees for certification of all schemes and claims applicable for 2013/14 for individual bodies are listed below.

The indicative fees for 2013/14 for individual bodies are based on final 2011/12 certification fees, reflecting the amount of work required by the auditor to certify the claims and returns in that year. Fees for schemes no longer requiring certification have been removed. The fees for certification of housing benefit subsidy claims have been reduced by 12 per cent, to reflect the removal of council tax benefit from the scheme.

It is possible that actual certification fees for 2013/14 may be higher or lower than the indicative fees listed below, because the auditor finds it is necessary to undertake more or less work than in 2011/12 on individual claims or returns.

Auditors must seek the agreement of the Commission to any proposed variations to indicative certification fees. We expect variations from the indicative fee to occur only where issues arise that are significantly different from those identified and reflected in the indicative fee.
