Calculation of the threshold levels
Expenditure threshold levels have been applied to the Scheme from its inception on the assumption that local authorities will budget to cover a proportion of the costs of emergency incidents from within internal resources.
Threshold levels apply to the whole financial year, not to each incident within the financial year.
The threshold levels will represent 0.2% of a local authority's budgeted net revenue expenditure and, for 2018-2019, are as follows:
|Local Authority||Threshold level (£s)|
|Argyll and Bute||485,468|
|Dumfries and Galloway||697,342|
|Edinburgh, City of||1,972,778|
|Perth and Kinross||660,174|
