    Budget Variances Commentary: Schedule of Comprehensive Income

    Affected line items

    Explanation of major variances

    Subsidies expenses

    The actuals were lower than budget primarily due to:

    1. Slightly lower growth in Research and Development claims

    2. ATO compliance activity resulting in disallowance of more Research and Development refundable tax offset claims

    Impairment on taxation receivables

    The actuals are higher than budget due primarily due to an increase in audit activity on large entities and entities entering insolvency.

    Penalty and interest charge remission expenses

    The actuals are lower than budget (particularly Individuals) primarily due to the continuing impact of the restatement of 2014-15 penalty remissions to adhere to the settlement policy.

    Interest on overpayments

    The actuals are lower than budget due to:

    1. Improved work practices reducing the processing time to issue refunds resulting in reduced entitlements to interest on overpayments

    2. Lower interest rate used to calculate actual expenditure

    Super guarantee charge

    SGC expense is predominantly driven by SGC revenue. The decrease in SGC expense was broadly in line with the decrease in SGC revenue. SGC revenue was lower than expected due to the pilot of a new employer engagement approach. This approach explored alternate methods to ensure SG payments are made to funds as quickly as possible without the need to proceed to audit action. However, as a result we have raised liabilities in fewer SGC cases than expected when preparing the original 2016-17 Budget

    Income tax

    The actuals are lower than budget primarily due to lower salary and wages growth for Individuals

    Indirect tax

    The actuals are lower than budget consistent with the lower consumption of goods and services subject to GST

    Unclaimed superannuation monies

    The actuals were lower than budget due:

    1. Higher USM Inflow offset by higher provision for USM Outflow for small member accounts with balances > $2000

    2. Higher USM outflow driven by ATO targeted campaign advising individuals to transfer their unclaimed super to an actual account resulted in more claims

    The above statement should be read in conjunction with the accompanying notes.
