Financial performance

Financial performance at a glance

The department recorded a favourable net result of $20.7 million in 2019 20, compared with the unfavourable net result of $8.4 million in the revised budget.

The favourable variance is mainly attributable to donated asset income received on completion of the GPO Exchange building fit-out ($25.6m).

The detailed 2019-20 financial statements and notes to the accounts are presented in a separate page.

Revised budget - total income - $211,902 total expenses  - $220,303 Actual result - total income $234950 total expenses $214,249 Variance total income $23,048 total expenses $6,054 Actual result total income $207,774 total expenses $221 429

The increase in income in 2019-20 compared to 2018-19 is mainly attributable to the donated asset income associated with the GPO Exchange building fit-out.

The decrease in expenses in 2019-20 compared to 2018-19 is mainly attributable to lower employee benefits costs, including a reduction in targeted voluntary separation payments and long service leave expenses, which is partly offset by indexation of costs in 2019-20.

Total operating income for 2019-20, including appropriation, was $235.0 million.  Income from state government appropriations accounted for around 42% of total income. A summary of income by source is shown in the figure below.

Statement of financial position

AGD’s net assets increased by $20.4 million during 2019-20. This increase is mainly attributable to the increase in non-current assets due to the completion of the GPO Exchange building fit-out.

The favourable variance for non-current liabilities relates to the GPO Exchange building fit-out. The fit-out was recognised as donated asset income rather than a lease incentive in the Statement of Financial Position.

Revised budget current assets 41,882 non-current assets 44,333 total assets 86,215 Current liabilities 32,098 non-current liabilities 61,282 total liabilities 93,380 - Actual result current assets 40,625 non-current assets 40,086 total assets 80,711

Account payment performance

The department was able to pay 99.2% of all invoices within 30 calendar days (99.4% in 2018-19).  The remaining 0.8% of invoices reflect both disputed accounts and late payment of undisputed accounts.
