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 2020-2021, are as follows:
|Local Authority||Threshold Level (£s)|
|Argyll & Bute||523,386|
|Dumfries & Galloway||750,918|
|Edinburgh, City of||2,142,378|
|Perth & Kinross||743,022|
