Estimates of Appropriations for the Government of New Zealand for the Year Ending 30 June 2013

Appropriations and Revenue#

The data in the workbooks for appropriations and Crown revenue is broken down by department, vote and appropriation/revenue type for 2012/13. We have also provided Actuals data covering the fiscal years ending 30 June 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011; and Estimated Actuals data for 2012.

Departmental Forecast Financial Statements#

The Excel workbook contains details of each department's comprehensive income, financial position, taxpayer's funds, and cash flows as published in the relevant sector's Information Supporting the Estimates of Appropriations 2012/13 for Budget 2012.

The forecast information is for the fiscal Year Ending 30 June 2013. Comparative actual data for 30 June 2011 and estimated actual data for 30 June 2012 is also provided.

The Data#

Raw data has been placed in the Excel workbooks to allow anyone to filter, sort and manipulate the data for their own purposes. Some examples in the form of pivot tables and charts are also provided.

Information relating to the use of these Excel workbooks is contained within the workbooks on a sheet titled "Explanation". More assistance on the use of pivot tables and charts can be obtained from the Excel help system. This data is available in Excel format only.


These spreadsheets are based on the data contained in the Crown Financial Information System, which is used to collect and compile the raw data for the Estimates of Appropriations 2011/12 from departments. They do not include data from the Supplementary Estimates of Appropriations 2010/11.

Data relating to the 2011/12 fiscal year will match the Estimates of Appropriations 2011/12 exactly.

These workbooks support, but do not form part of, the official Budget documents. The printed copies of the Estimates and Supplementary Estimates, as tabled by the Minister of Finance on each Budget day, are the official sources for data contained in these workbooks.

The Treasury has generated these workbooks as a resource for interested persons and has taken all care to ensure the data are correct, but does not take responsibility for any errors or conclusions drawn from this data.

The Treasury does not provide technical support on the use of Microsoft Excel workbooks.

Additional Disclaimers for Departmental Forecast Financial Statements Data#

This workbook is based on the departmental Forecast Financial Statements data contained in the Crown Financial Information System, which is used to collect and compile the raw data for the Estimates 2011/12. Departmental Forecast Financial Statements are not produced for Supplementary Estimates.

As per the Public Finance Act 1989 (PFA), the financial statements of the Government Communications Security Bureau, and the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service, are not included. PFA, s.45E(2)(a) refers.

Notes to the Accounts are not included. To see departmental selected breakdown of lines into finer detail please refer to the Notes to the Accounts in the source documents.

Crown operations, managed by departments on behalf of the Crown, are not included in departmental accounts and therefore are not included.

Prior to 2008/09, departmental Forecast Financial Statements were disclosed in each department's Statement of Intent. The structure and format of the Forecast Financial Statements has been standardised within the Estimates and thus may differ from the structure contained in previous departmental Statements of Intent.
