Funding from government for operational costs: Amount reimbursed under fuel tax credits

Funding from government for specific capital items

Gross fixed capital formation is measured by the total value of a producer's acquisitions, less disposals, of fixed assets during the reference period, plus certain additions to the value of non-produced assets realised by the productive activity of businesses.
Fixed assets are tangible or intangible assets produced as outputs from processes of production that are themselves used repeatedly or continuously in other processes of production for more than one year.
The derivation of GFCF is as follows:
plus Other transport equipment
Industrial machinery and equipment
Computer software capitalised
Computers and computer peripherals
Electronic equipment and electrical machinery
Other plant and equipment
Dwellings, other buildings and structures
Computer software expensed
Mining exploration expenditure written off
less Disposal of plant, machinery and equipment (including motor vehicles)
Disposal of dwellings, other buildings and structures
The structure of ANZSIC comprises four levels, ranging from industry division (broadest level) to industry class (finest level). Activities are narrowly defined within the industry class level, which is identified by a four-digit code, e.g. Industry Class 0801 Iron ore mining. Usually, an activity is primarily defined to one class. However, some activities may be primary to more than one class.
The structure of ANZSIC comprises four levels, ranging from industry division (broadest level) to industry class (finest level). The main purpose of the industry division level is to provide a limited number of categories which give a broad overall picture of the economy. There are 19 divisions within ANZSIC, each identified by an alphabetical letter, that is, 'A' for Agriculture, forestry and fishing, 'B' for Mining, 'C' for Manufacturing, etc.
This is the broadest level category within each industry division of ANZSIC and is identified by a two-digit code, e.g. Industry Subdivision 06 for Coal mining. Industry subdivisions are built up from industry groups which, in turn, are built up from industry classes.
Industry value added (IVA)
IVA is an estimate of the difference between the market value of the output of an industry and the purchases of materials and expenses incurred in the production of that output.
The derivation of IVA for individual businesses depends on whether they are classified as market or non-market producers. Non-market producers are those institutions which provide goods or services either free or at prices that are not economically significant. In other words, their prices are not significantly influenced by the amounts that producers are willing to supply, nor the amounts that users are willing to pay to purchase the goods or services being provided. Conversely, market producers provide goods and services at prices that are economically significant.
For market producers, the derivation of IVA is as follows:
Sales and service income
plus Funding from federal, state and/or local government for operational costs
Capital work done for own use
less Opening inventories
Purchases of goods and materials
Other intermediate input expenses
However, it should be noted that IVA is a measure of economic activity and is not equivalent to operating profit before tax (OPBT). Wage and salary expenses and most other labour costs are not taken into account in the calculation for market producers, neither are interest expenses, depreciation or a number of lesser expenses. On the income side, OPBT includes total income, whereas IVA only includes sales and service income and government funding for operational costs.
As a principle, the output of non-market production is valued at cost, including intermediate input expenses. As shown in the above derivation, purchases and other intermediate input expenses are deducted from output in order to arrive at IVA.
Accordingly, the derivation of IVA for non-market producers can be described as follow:
Selected labour costs
plus Depreciation and amortisation
Estimates of industry value added are obtained by summing the contributions of businesses classified to that industry, both market and (if any) non-market producers. Market producers predominate in most industries.
Industry value added is related to, but different from, the national accounting variable gross value added. For national accounts purposes, gross value added is calculated by adjusting IVA to include General government units and also to account for some other effects.
Premiums for fire, general, accident, public liability, optional third-party and comprehensive motor vehicle insurance, professional indemnity insurance and common law liability. Excludes workers' compensation insurance premiums/costs (included in selected labour costs), compulsory third party motor vehicle insurance premiums (included in motor vehicle running expenses), and reinsurance premiums paid.

Also includes interest equivalents, such as hedging costs, and expenses associated with discounted bills. Excludes bank charges other than interest, and capital repayments.

Also includes capitalised wages and salaries.

Excludes expenses for off-road motor vehicles (e.g. mobile plant, quarry dump trucks) and lease payments, optional third party and comprehensive motor vehicle insurance premiums, and depreciation.
