Notes to the Financial Statements
The financial statements have been prepared on an accrual basis and in accordance with the historic cost convention. No allowance is made for the effect of changing prices on the results or the financial position of the AOFM.
Administered internal transactions
Administered transactions between the AOFM and other agencies within the general government (administered internal transactions) are not reported in the note of budgeted administered revenues and expenses or the note of budgeted administered assets and liabilities.
Cash flows in the note of budgeted administered cash flows are reported inclusive of administered internal transactions.
Goods and Services Tax (GST)
The AOFM is an input taxed entity under A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999.
The budgeted financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the GST accounting guidelines of the Urgent Issues Group (UIG) of the Australian Accounting Standards Board. The UIG consensus requires that expenses and assets be accounted for net of recoverable GST, revenues be accounted for net of GST payable and that cash flows and accounts payable and receivable be reported gross. Appropriations are net of recoverable GST amounts.
Agency and administered financial statements
Under the Commonwealth's accrual budgeting framework, and consistent with Australian Accounting Standards, transactions that agencies control (agency transactions) are separately budgeted for and reported from transactions agencies do not have control over (administered transactions). This ensures that agencies are only held fully accountable for the transactions over which they have control.
- Agency assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses are those which are controlled by the agency. Agency expenses include employee and supplier expenses and other administrative costs, which are incurred by the agency in providing its goods and services.
- Administered assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses are those which are managed on behalf of the Government according to set government directions. Administered expenses include interest incurred on Commonwealth debt and administered revenues include interest earned on housing agreement loans and interest from swaps.
Appropriations in the accrual budgeting framework
Under the Commonwealth's accrual budgeting framework, separate annual appropriations are provided to the AOFM for:
- agency price of outputs appropriations: representing the Government's purchase of outputs; and
- administered expense appropriations: for the estimated administered expenses relating to debt management output.
In addition, special appropriations continue under the accrual budgeting framework, and fund the majority of payments from the Official Public Account, including gross debt redemption and financial investment activity.
Agency budgeted financial statements
Price of outputs appropriation estimates are not based on market price indicators. The agreed price of outputs appropriation estimates are based on budgeted expenses.
The AOFM has prepared its estimates for the 2002-03 budget and forward years to achieve a break-even operating result. Consequently the appropriation revenue from Government represents the funding required to meet all expenses after deduction of revenue from other sources.
The AOFM has estimated that it will earn $20,000 interest on credit balances in its agency account and from term deposit investments.
Assets and liabilities
The estimated cash reserves will be maintained in order to ensure that the AOFM is well placed to:
- settle employee liabilities as they fall due;
- make asset replacements (from depreciation funding); and
- repay liabilities.
Budgeted financial statements have been prepared on the assumption that unspent monies will not be withdrawn by the Department of Finance and Administration.
