Annual accounts

We publish accounts at the end of each financial year (1 April to 31 March). These accounts help us to demonstrate how we use public money.

The accounts show our income and spending over the previous 12 months and balances at the end of that period. Our accounts are checked by external auditors before they are signed off.

This year's accounts

Our unaudited accounts for 2017/18 are currently being checked by external auditors before the final accounts are approved and published. The unaudited accounts are available for inspection until Friday 20 July.

The accounts can be inspected in person during the opening times at any of our local libraries or in person between 9.30am and 4pm, Monday to Friday, at:

  • Council HQ, English Street, Dumfries, DG1 2DD

Email if you'd like to inspect all books, deed, contracts, bills, vouchers and receipts relating to the Annual Accounts being audited. We'll arrange to make the appropriate documents available at a mutually acceptable date and location.
