Academies accounts return

The academies accounts return (AR) online form is now live for users to complete and submit their trust’s return by the deadline of 23 February 2021.

The AR can only be submitted by your external auditor. Please check that your external auditor details are correct as soon as possible. This is to ensure they have access to the return to avoid delays. For more information, please see the guide to completing the accounts return online form.

If you have difficulties accessing the form, please read the IDAMS registration guidance. Your login details will be the same ones as previously used for the budget forecast return earlier in the year.

If you have any questions, please use the ESFA online enquiry form. Please select option ‘Academies financial returns/IDAMS’ and provide your trust’s UPIN or company number.

Alternatively if you are seeking further advice or assistance with your academies accounts return, please contact your local Moore (South) office.
