Renfrewshire Council

Budget

What services we provide, how we set our budget, our budget for 2021 to 2022, previous budgets.

We provide a wide range of essential services right across Renfrewshire's towns and villages, caring for the most vulnerable, running our 97 schools and nurseries, maintaining our local roads network, managing and maintaining 12,000 homes, keeping our streets clean and supporting people in to work.

The Council budget sets out our revenue and capital spending for the financial year, which runs from 1 April to 31 March.

Revenue is the day-to-day running costs to provide services and includes salary and wage costs, property costs, supplies and services, administration costs, interest payments and repayment of debts. Capital spending is what we spend on our council owned buildings and assets.

Around 78% of our funding comes from a Scottish Government grant and the remaining 22% is raised through Council Tax.
