Finance overview

Fees and charges pay for some of the services we provide.

The rest comes from the government and council tax. Council Tax covers about 53% of our budget.

We also collect Council Tax for: 

  • Cumbria County Council
  • Cumbria Police Authority¬†
  • parish councils

Our annual accounts must be audited by independent auditors appointed by the Audit Commission in England and Wales.

You can inspect the accounts to be audited, ask questions and lodge objections with the auditor.
