* Variation between 2020–21 Budget and 2020–21 Actual

The 2020–21 Actual total comprehensive result is a deficit of $9.171 million, which is $13.384 million favourable when compared to the 2020–21 Budget. This is primarily due to a decision to transfer Crown land, formerly occupied by the Strathmont Centre, to the Department for Environment and Water.

This decision resulted in the budgeted return of anticipated sale proceeds to the consolidated account not occurring, leading to the improvement compared to the projected deficit. This improvement was partially offset by a decrement applied to the asset revaluation surplus following an asset valuation.

* Variation between 2020–21 Budget and 2020–21 Actual

The net decrease in net assets between the 2020–21 Budget and 2020–21 Actual result is mainly due to the:

  • reduction in current assets, reflecting lower than anticipated cash held
  • reduction in non-current assets, reflecting the impact of asset revaluation and the transfer of Crown land to the Department for Environment and Water
  • net reduction in liabilities, reflecting the impact of actuarial revaluations of liabilities for long service leave and workers compensation.
