Council income

Fees and funding

The Council receives most of its money from three main sources. In 2017/18, we expect to receive

  • £355.1 million from Business rates
  • £266.3 million from Council Tax (net)
  • £346.5 million from the Scottish Government.

The breakdown figures above have been updated since the Council Tax leaflet for 2017/18 was issued. It reflects the revised respective funding contribution from Government Grant and Non-Domestic Rates set out within Finance Circular 1/2017.

Fees and charges

We charge for some of our services, like use of facilities, school meals, and adult education.
