Local Government Finance Act (Northern Ireland) 2011

Section 19 – “Capital expenditure”

Wherever possible, the new system of financial administration takes standard accounting practices and concepts as its starting point, which reduces the need for special definitions in the legislation.

Section 19 gives the Department power to include, or exclude, types of expenditure to be treated as capital expenditure by individual councils (by direction) or more generally (by regulations).
