Section 3: Budgeted financial statements
Section 3 presents budgeted financial statements which provide a comprehensive snapshot of the NCA's finances for the 2017–18 Budget year, including the impact of Budget measures and resourcing on financial statements.
3.1 Budgeted financial statements
3.1.1 Explanatory notes and analysis of budgeted financial statements
Departmental comprehensive income statement
The NCA is budgeting for an operating loss of ($0.6m) in 2016-17, ($1.1m) in 2017-18, and ($0.015m) in 2018-19, adjusted for depreciation and amortisation expense. This arises from an accounting treatment in 2015-16 audited accounts relating to settlement funds of $1.2m, and an asset reclassification (write-down) in 2016-17 from Departmental to Administered program.
The NCA is budgeting for a break-even operating result in 2019-20 and forward years.
Revenue from Government in 2017–18 remains relatively consistent compared to 2016–17.
Revenue from other sources principally reflects the recovery of costs for the provision of services and rental income.
Budgeted departmental balance sheet
The increase in the NCA's departmental budgeted net asset position in 2017–18 and forward years is due to additional capital funding received through the Public Service Modernisation Agency Sustainability Fund for business and ICT transformation and improvements to NCA managed buildings.
Schedule of budgeted income and expenses administered on behalf of Government
In 2017–18, the NCA will receive appropriation of $2.9m for supplier expenses including the insurance premium for risks associated with assets on National Land and operating expenses associated with the administration of the pay parking program.
Revenue from administered activities primarily includes pay parking revenue, lease revenue on diplomatic land and user charges which are returned in full to the Budget.
Schedule of budgeted assets and liabilities administered on behalf of the Government
In 2017–18, the NCA will receive appropriation of $13.6m for activities it administers on behalf of the Government. This appropriation is directly linked to the administered capital budget and will be used to replace and upgrade existing administered assets.
The reduction in NCA's administered net asset position in 2017–18 and forward years is largely due to higher accumulated depreciation expenses on capital assets compared to capital funding received to replace and upgrade existing assets.
