The scale(s) prescribed are subject to prior consultation. If it appears to the Auditor General that work on a particular audit differs substantially from that envisaged by the appropriate scale, the fee charged may differ. Different scales can apply to different categories of local government bodies in Wales (e.g., county and county borough councils, fire and rescue authorities, National Park authorities).
