Table 2.1: Appropriations and other revenue 2005-061 (‘000)

Table 2.1:  Appropriations and other revenue 2005-061 (‘000)

1 This table has been redesigned to correspond with Budget Paper No. 4, Agency Resourcing 2005-06.

2 Estimated expenses from individual Special Appropriations are shown in table 2.5. The amount showing for appropriations represents appropriations to deliver Tax Office programmes. Amounts disclosed under special appropriations do not include the expenditure to pay refunds under the tax system.

3 Total appropriations = Bill No. 1 + Bill No. 2 + Special appropriations.

4 Revenue from other sources includes Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997 (FMA) s.31 revenues, that are available to be expensed, special accounts (non-appropriation revenues) and resources received free of charge.

5 Percentage figures indicate the percentage contribution of Revenue from Government (Departmental Appropriations) to the total price of outputs, by outcome, and the percentage contribution of Revenue from other sources (Departmental) to the total price of outputs, by outcome.

6 Total resources = Total appropriations + Revenue from other sources.

Note: Refer to Budgeted departmental statement of financial performance for application of agency revenue.
