Up to 2016/17 the Parish Council was subject to an annual audit by external auditors (in addition to its own internal audit). Parish Councils with income or expenditure less than £25,000 are now no longer subject to external audit. Charney Bassett falls well below this threshold.

The Parish Council is nevertheless required to advertise its annual accounts for public inspection each year. These (and its governance procedures) are subject to internal audit. Relevant documents for the last financial year are published here.
