Appendix 2 Consolidated Fund Estimates

Key Issues

       The annual Budget Estimates are presented on a total resources basis for the General Government Sector. This includes, but is much broader than, the Consolidated Fund estimates presented in this appendix. For further information on the Tasmanian Government financial management framework see the Guide to the Budget that is available on the Department of Treasury and Finance website at www.treasury.tas.gov.au.

       In 2017‑18, it is estimated that the Consolidated Fund Outcome will be a $161.5 million deficit.

       Consolidated Fund Outcome projections for 2018‑19 to 2020‑21 are:

-  2018‑19: $201.3 million deficit;

-  2019‑20: $24.4 million deficit; and

-  2020‑21: $96.8 million surplus.


Introduction

This appendix provides information on the 2017‑18 Consolidated Fund Budget Estimates and the Consolidated Fund Forward Estimates for the years 2018‑19 to 2020‑21. The information in this appendix has been prepared on a cash basis, representing receipts into, and payments from, the Consolidated Fund.

Notes:

1.   Refer to chapter 5 of this Budget Paper for more information on General Government Revenue.

2.   Classification of Receipts for the purposes of the Consolidated Fund is not consistent with classifications shown in the Statement of Comprehensive Income prepared in accordance with the Uniform Presentation Framework.

3.   The increase in Taxation in 2017-18 primarily reflects an increase in Conveyance Duty of $55.6 million and Land Tax of $11.4 million.

4.   The increase in Receipts from Government Businesses in 2017-18 primarily reflects additional Dividends from the Tasmanian Public Finance Corporation of $78.1 million relating to the investment of additional grant monies received in 2016‑17 from the Australian Government following the transfer of ownership of the Mersey Community Hospital to the State Government (expected to occur by 30 June 2017) together with additional Dividend and Income Tax Equivalent returns from the Motor Accidents Insurance Board of $35.4 million.

5.   The increase in Resource Rents and Royalties in 2017-18 primarily reflects an increase in Mineral Royalties estimates of $20.8 million.

6.   The increase in Other Recurrent Receipts in 2017‑18 compared to 2016-17 primarily reflects $21.7 million of Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangement funding relating to the June 2016 Flood event. The significant increase in 2019-20 reflects the projected receipt of $102.1 million from the Australian Government for the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
