CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

SCOPE

This release contains general government data only. GFE releases will no longer include any Public Non-financial Corporation or Non-financial Public Sector tables. The General Government Expenses by Purpose (2 digit) table is also no longer produced. Information on expenses by purpose, and for sectors other than the general government sector for completed rather than forecast financial years will continue to be available in Government Finance Statistics, Australia (cat. no. 5512.0), released in April each year.

TABLE LAYOUTS

A single layout across all operating statements and cash flow statements has been adopted in this year's release as a result of the revised scope of the publication.

INTRODUCTION

GFE data is compiled from initial budget forecasts. It does not take account of more recently published or revised forecasts such as those contained in mid-term revisions issued by any jurisdiction. The purpose of the GFE publication is to assist users making an assessment of each jurisdiction's initial budget on a GFS basis, recognising budgets are brought down at different times in different jurisdictions.

This release contains the government financial estimates on a GFS basis for the Operating Statement and Cash Flow Statement relating to the 2004-05 financial year for each jurisdiction. It also includes consolidated results for each level of government, i.e. Commonwealth, State, Local, Multi-jurisdictional, and All levels of government.

KEY FIGURES

The summary table below presents the 2004-05 GFS Net Operating Balance and GFS Net Lending/Borrowing forward estimates for the general government sector for each level of government.
