The mayor prepares the budget proposal annually for the next calendar year and the economic plan for the next three years.

The City Board discusses the budget proposal twice in October. The City Council then discusses the budget proposal twice in November. On the first occasion, the City Council decides on the local taxes and property tax for the next year. The budget will be approved in the seccond meeting.

The budget is published in Finnish and Swedish. Annual reports are also published in English.

What is the City budget?

Presented in the budget are the development goals for city functions and an account on how the operations and investments will be financed. The starting point for the drawing up of the budget lies in the financial goals of the City Strategy 2017–2021.

An investment examination is worked out in Helsinki for ten years, in connection to the budget work. The budget includes task and project specific operational objectives, appropriations and revenue estimates.

The City Council decides on the binding level of the department goals annually in connection to the budget work. Only the Council can alter the contents of the budget during the year. The completion of the objectives established in the budget is followed up and the City Councillors will be notified on the progress.
