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 2019-2020, are as follows:
|Local authority||Threshold level (£s)|
|Argyll & Bute||505,946|
|Dumfries & Galloway||707,234|
|Edinburgh, City of||2,033,568|
|Perth & Kinross||690,708|
