Corporate Debt Policy

While an element of the Council’s overall spending is supported by means of Scottish Government grant, Council services are also funded through taxes and a range of statutory and non-statutory service charges. Customers, citizens and businesses within Edinburgh have a responsibility to pay for the services they receive and the charges and rents they are liable for. It is essential that all monies due to the Council are actively pursued and this document sets out the general debt principles to be applied in doing so.
