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. Expenses, income, assets and liabilities for AGS have been consolidated into the Department’s financial statements for the first time in 2015–16 year. As a consequence, expenses, income, 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, expenses, income, assets and liabilities may be materially different to the comparative shown in the 2014–15 financial year.

3 Payments to corporate Commonwealth entities are not related to the outcomes of the Department. They are included here so the total can agree to the resourcing table.
