Auditor General issues qualified opinion on Welsh Government 2020-21 accounts

12 August 2022
  • The Auditor General for Wales has issued his opinion and report on the Welsh Government accounts for 2020-21 [opens in new window].

    He has qualified his audit opinions because:

    • material expenditure relating to certain business grants has been included in the 2020-21 accounts instead of the 2019-20 accounts
    • there is a material omission of expenditure relating to clinicians’ pension tax liabilities
    • there is insufficient appropriate evidence to determine whether expenditure in the 2020-21 accounts relating to a payment to the former Permanent Secretary is correct and properly authorised
    2020-21 was an extraordinary year, with Welsh Government’s reported net resource outturn increasing from £18.1 billion in 2019-20 to £25.2 billion in 2020-21.  My audit opinion and report on the Welsh Government’s accounts draws out the issues that our work has identified. I will be providing further information on these matters to the Senedd’s Public Accounts and Public Administration Committee (PAPAC). Adrian Crompton, Auditor General
