Section 5 : Budgeted Financial Statements

5.1: ANALYSIS OF BUDGETED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS CIVIL AVIATION SAFETY AUTHORITY

An analysis of CASA's budgeted financial statements, as reflected in the budgeted departmental financial statements for 2007-08, is provided below.

Budgeted departmental income statement

CASA is budgeting for a breakeven position for the 2007-08 financial years. This result is a decrease of $9.7m from the 2006-07 estimated surplus. Total revenue in 2007-08 is estimated to be $138.6m, an increase of $14.7m from the 2006-07 estimated actual revenue. The increase reflects the implementation of the LTFS and regulatory service fees ($5.8m), funding for new measures ($4.1m), funding for airspace regulation (2.6m), funding from a purchaser-provider arrangement ($2.2m). Bill 1 appropriations, excluding funding for new measures, has decreased by $0.1m to $40.4m.

Chart 5.1 illustrates CASA's move towards self-sustainability through increased revenue from independent sources and a reduction in government appropriations. The sharp decrease in appropriations in 2005-06 reflects a reduction in Bill 1 appropriations offset by an increase in regulatory service fees, while the decrease in appropriations in 2008-09 reflects a reduction in the rate of aviation fuel excise.

Total expenses and borrowing costs in 2007-08 are estimated to be $138.6m, an increase of $24.4m from the 2006-07 estimated actual. The overall increase is attributable to:
