Council income

Fees and funding

The Council receives most of its money from three main sources. In 2019/20, we expect to receive

  • £365.3 million from Non-Domestic (Business) Rates
  • £293.6 million from Council Tax
  • £333.3 million from Scottish Government Grants.

The breakdown figures above reflect the Council Tax leaflet which was issued for 2019/20 charges and the Council’s approved 2019/20 budget motion.

Fees and charges

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