County of Nelson, Virginia
Delay of FY 2022-2023 Audit Completion
In accordance with requirements from the 2019 legislative session amending Section 15.2-2511 of the Code of Virginia, effective July 1, 2019, if the locality’s audit is not completed as required by this statute, the locality must promptly post a statement on its website, if such website exists, with the following information:
 That the required audit is pending,
 The reasons for the delay, and
 The estimated date of completion

The County of Nelson, Virginia is hereby posting the following statement:
 The required annual financial audit for FY 2022-2023 is currently pending by the independent audit firm of Robinson, Farmer, Cox Associates, Certified Public Accountants.
 The reason for the delay is as follows: The County’s pre-audit provider was unable to complete the required pre-audit documents timely due to severe health issues within their organization which lead to a delay in getting the information to Robinson, Farmer, Cox Associates. This has resulted in a delay in the preparation of the financial statements and a delay in the actual completion of the audit and preparation of the CAFR.
 The estimated date of completion of the required audit, preparation of the CAFR, and the transmittal data to the Auditor of Public Accounts is no later than January 31, 2024.
 March 29, 2024 Update: While the earlier estimated completion date was not met, the auditing firm is confident in setting a final completion date of April 12, 2024, if not sooner.
