The Department currently has 17 (2015: 12) agreements for the lease of premises, some of which have provisions requiring the Department to restore the premises to their original condition at the conclusion of the lease. The Department has made a provision to reflect the present value of this obligation.

Notes

1 On 15 December 2014, the Government announced that it would consolidate the Australian Government Solicitor (AGS) within the Attorney-General’s Department with effect from 1 July 2015. Assets and liabilities for the AGS have been consolidated into the Department’s financial statements for the first time in the 2015–16 financial year. As a consequence, both assets and liabilities may be materially different to the comparative shown in the 2014–15 financial year.

2 In accordance with the Administrative Arrangements Order of 21 September 2015, the Classification, Copyright and Arts and Cultural Development programs and functions were transferred to the Department of Communications and the Arts with effect from 1 November 2015. Accordingly, assets and liabilities may be materially different to the comparative shown in the 2014–15 financial year.
