Annual Audit Reports/CAFR

The Town is required to have its financial records audited annually by an independent accounting firm. Once the annual audit is complete, the Town issues its Annual Audit Report or Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). The CAFR comprises the Town’s actual audited revenues and expenditures and presents the Town’s financial position at the end of the fiscal year. The CAFR is also useful in the preparation of the Town’s budget in subsequent years as it can be used as a model for future predictions of the Town’s revenues and expenditures.

What is in a CAFR or Annual Audit Report?

The CAFR is presented in three sections:

  1. Introductory section - includes transmittal letter.
  2. Financial section - includes the independent auditor’s report and contains management’s discussion and analysis, government-wide financial statements, fund financial statements, notes to the financial statements, required supplementary information, combining financial statements and schedules.
  3. Statistical section - includes additional financial, economic and demographic information.
