The Council's expenditure is divided between Revenue and Capital.

Revenue Expenditure is the money spent on day-to-day items such as payroll, pensions, insurances, loan repayments, purchase of necessary materials etc.   The sources of revenue income are:
(1) Commercial Rates
(2) Grants from Central Government
(3) Receipts from the provision of services

Capital Expenditure on the other hand is money spent on the creation of an asset which, in the case of a County Council, mainly relates to the building of Council houses, giving loans to people to build their own houses, the provision of water and sewerage schemes and road construction.   These projects are funded by way of Department grant or by loan over the construction period but when the project is completed its operational costs are funded by the revenue account.
