The Education Funding Agency (EFA) validates the information in academy trusts’ accounts returns before consolidating them into its annual accounts. EFA’s delivery partners, Deloitte, apply a series of validation tests to identify any errors in the returns.
The documents you can find on this page are:
2014 to 2015 accounts returns: validation tests: Excel version
2014 to 2015 accounts returns: validation tests: Open document format
The documents are available in open document spreadsheet format as well as in Microsoft Excel.
Between March and May 2016, Deloitte will apply the validation tests to academy trusts’ 2014 to 2015 accounts returns. In carrying out the validation, Deloitte will contact some academy trusts on EFA’s behalf in order to resolve any queries. They will raise only one set of queries, where possible.
The Education Funding Agency (EFA) has updated the page with the list of tests and standard questions that will be used to validate the information provided in academy trusts’ 2014 to 2015 accounts returns.
