The Treasury (LSE41OY); (LSE57QI); (Manx: Yn Tashtey) of the Isle of Man is the finance department of the Isle of Man Government. It prepares the annual budget for the Government,[1] and also handles taxation, customs and excise, economic affairs, information systems, internal audit, currency and the census in the Isle of Man.

The Minister for the Treasury is Alfred Cannan MHK.


The Finance Board was established in 1962, although the Lieutenant Governor of the Isle of Man functioned as Chancellor of the Exchequer and gave the budget speech in Tynwald until the 1970s.

In 1986 the Finance Board was abolished and its functions transferred to the Treasury as part of the reorganisation of the Isle of Man Government on a ministerial basis.
