One of the requirements of Teaching Agency (TA) funding, as set out in the financial memorandum, is that providers submit independently audited accounts each year. Submitting a completed audit grant report forms a part of this process. This guidance is intended as a reference for providers when completing the audit grant report.

The RO must work with the auditors to ensure that a signed and certified audited report is submitted electronically to the TA by 31 December 2012 at the latest. It is the responsibility of the provider to ensure that the deadline is met. Please note that except in exceptional circumstances, amendments cannot be made once the report is signed off by the auditors.
