EFA requires all academy trusts preparing financial statements as at 31 August 2016 and/or with open academies at 31 August 2016 to submit an accounts return for 2015 to 2016 by 31 January 2017.

EFA will accept returns using the Excel workbook for trusts who submit their accounts return by 31 December. We’re updating the current workbook following feedback and we’ll publish an updated version and information about how to submit it by 6 December.

This page has:

  • a guide to setting up the Hub for the academies accounts return

EFA uses information in the accounts return to produce the academies sector annual report and accounts (SARA).
