Financial performance 2020-21


Financial performance at a glance

The following is a brief summary of the overall financial position of the agency. The information is unaudited. Full audited financial statements for 2020-21 are attached to this report.

The department recorded an unfavourable net result of $15.9 million in 2020 21, compared with the favourable net result of $2.7 million estimated in the revised budget.

The unfavourable variance is mainly attributable to the revaluation of an asset transferred to AGD as part of the Planning and Local Government machinery of government change during 2020-21.

The South Australian Integrated Land Information System (SAILIS) is operated and maintained by Land Services SA on behalf of the State. The SAILIS system is a data service concession asset and measured at current replacement cost. The value of the asset transferred to AGD was $294.8m, which was revalued down to $264.1m at 30 June 2021. The impact of this revaluation is reported as a loss on revaluation in the financial statements ($30.7m). This revaluation decrement was due to the inputs associated with the revaluation model, mainly a change in the overhead cost per record and the volume of records used to calculate the value. This is detailed further in note 5.4 of the financial statements.
