Public expenditures are public outlays which competent state organs realize for the purpose of fulfilling obligations of general public interest. They are manifested in different forms and in different social, economic and political areas. Public expenditures produce direct and indirect effects in production and influence consumption and prices. Economic structure and conjectural courses of one country have an impact on the highness of the public expenditures. Economic and social subsidies present the main instruments for achieving economic and social effects through the policy of public expenditures, whilst in conjectural economies; the effect of public expenditures is large and is realized through the mechanism of multiplicators which are used when the economy is in the state of economic stagnation and recession. After the war, Kosovo built a new fiscal system according to the best international practices. The tax system consists of some taxes, it has a wide spread of tax charges and applies relatively low tax rates. Both budgetary revenues and budgetary consumption have marked certain variations in relation to GDP. Currently, The Kosovo Consolidated Budget (KCB) is completely fulfilled by domestic revenues. It is considered that, even if the budgetary consumption increases up to 30-34% of GDP, this raise will not endanger budgetary sustainability of the country. According to the World Bank assessment (PEFA document- 2006) on the Effectiveness of Management of Public Expenditures in Kosovo, based on the performance of main indicators of management of public finances, the effectiveness of management of public expenditures in Kosovo is relatively satisfactory. According to the draft-document of the World Bank and the Government of Kosovo (PEFA-2008), the quality of management of public expenditures in 2008 has been profoundly improved.
