Funding of the Barangay

The majority of Barangay Bel-Air's funds come from the Real Property Tax (RPT) payments, while the sources of income include clearances, the Internal Revenue Allotment (IRA), the Community Tax Certificate (CTC) payments and other miscellaneous sources (e.g. interest from investments, payment of IDs).

The share of Barangay Bel-Air from the RPT constitutes thirty percent (30%) of the barangay's real property taxes, half of which goes to Barangay Bel-Air while the other half is distributed equally among the other barangays in the city.

The share of all barangays in the IRA constitute twenty percent (20%,) and each barangay's share is allocated on the basis of the following formula: population - sixty percent (60%) and equal sharing - forty percent (40%).

Ten percent (10%) of the barangay's general fund goes to the Sangguniang Kabataan.

To prepare the barangay budget, the barangay treasurer submits to the Punong Barangay an estimate of the income and expenditures of the barangay. The Punong Barangay then prepares the barangay budget, which is then submitted to the Sangguniang Barangay for legislative enactment.

The Commission on Audit (COA) ensures that the barangay follows its regulations with regards to its accounts, such as:

- The barangay cannot appropriate public money or property for religious or private purposes.
- Funds shall be available exclusively for the specific purpose for which they have been appropriated. No ordinance shall be passed authorizing any transfer of appropriations from one item to another.
- No money shall be paid on account of any contract under which services have been rendered or goods delivered.
- No cach advance shall be granted to any local official or employee, elective or appointive, unless made in accordance with the rules and regulations as the COA may prescribe.

In accordance to the law, fifty-five percent (55%) of Barangay Bel-Air's funds is spent for administrative expenses, whole forty-five percent (45%) is allocated for supporting its projects, some of which include the following items:
