South Somerset District Council opted into this arrangement.

    On 14 December 2017, the PSAA Board approved the appointment of Grant Thornton (UK) LLP to audit the accounts of South Somerset District Council for a period of five years, covering the accounts from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2023.  This appointment is made under Regulation 13 of the Local Audit (Appointing Person) Regulations 2015.  If you have any queries, contact accountancy@southsomerset.gov.uk
