Council income

Fees and funding

The Council receives most of its money from three main sources. In 2018/19, we expect to receive

  • £340.5 million from Non-Domestic (Business) Rates
  • £283.1 million from Council Tax
  • £365.5 million from Scottish Government Grants.

The breakdown figures above reflect the Council Tax leaflet which was issued for 2018/19 charges and the Council’s approved 2018/19 budget motion.

Fees and charges

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