Budget plan

A budget is drawn up in Innsbruck every year. This current estimate contains all the income and expenditure expected to be due in the relevant financial year. This estimate forms the basis for the management of the municipal budget (see Section 4 of the Innsbruck City Charter).

The budget also determines the staffing plan of the Innsbruck CitymagiCouncil (Section 3 of the Innsbruck Municipal Civil Servants Act and the Estimates and Closing of Accounts Ordinance).

Guidelines for the budget

(according to the Ordinance on Estimates and Closing of Accounts, VRV):

  • Annuality
  • Completeness
  • Gross estimate
  • Accuracy of the budget balance
  • Separation of budgeted expenditure according to personnel and non-personnel expenditure
