In 2002-03, the total net assets of all councils in Tasmania was $4,366 million, which equates to net assets of $9,151 per head of population.

The local government council of Flinders recorded net assets per head of population of $47,029, significantly higher than other local government councils, because the council rather than the state government owns and is responsible for the provision of most of its roads. Central Highlands council also recorded high net assets per head of population ($27,393) due to a high level of non-current assets relating to roads.
