The sources of b.e. are mainly budget revenues.

The sum of budget expenses and expenditures constitutes the public expenses. The permissible amount of b.e. of the local-government units and their plan are included in the budget resolution, which defines their impassable limit for the financial year. Local-government units plan b.e. also in the long-term perspective in the → Long-term Financial Forecast (→ budget’s revenue of local-government units) [ T. Strąk ].
