    Budget Variances Commentary: Statement of Financial Position
    Affected line items Explanation of major variances
    Cash The actual was lower than budget primarily due to fluctuations associated with the timing of payments to employees and suppliers.
    Trade and other receivables The higher than budgeted actual is primarily driven by a higher than expected appropriation receivable aligned with pending payments to suppliers.
    Buildings - leasehold improvements Lower than budgeted Building - leasehold improvements is due to a change in asset purchase priorities after budget approval, resulting in lower than expected asset additions.
    Plant and equipment Higher than budgeted Plant and equipment is driven by a change in asset purchase priorities after budget approval, resulting in additional asset purchases.
    Intangibles - computer software Higher than budgeted Intangibles - computer software is driven by considerably higher than expected asset additions, consistent with the change in asset purchase priorities after budget approval. This increase is partially offset by a higher than budgeted depreciation charge for the year.
    Other non-financial assets The actual was lower than budget due to less than expected lease incentives provided to sublease tenants.
    Employees The higher than budgeted employee payables is driven by higher than expected separation and redundancies towards the end of the year.
    Suppliers The higher than budgeted actuals is primarily driven by pending payments for services provided on behalf of the ATO.
    Other payables The actual was lower than budget primarily due to reduced operating lease incentives.
    Employee provisions The higher than budgeted actual is predominantly due to the higher than expected provision for employee benefits following the adoption of the ATO Enterprise Agreement 2017.
    Other provisions The higher than budgeted actual is largely driven by additional legal costs and indemnities for unforeseen cases not factored into the budget.
    Accumulated deficit The budgeted equity balances did not account for an operating deficit nor subsequent appropriation reductions associated with the repeal of a number of Appropriation Acts related to prior years.

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