Adjustments to the Summary of Financial Activity Table Due to Vote Restructuring

There have been no restructuring adjustments to prior year information in the Summary of Financial Activity table.

Output Expenses

The increase in Output Expenses from 2017/18 to 2020/21 is due to:

  • additional funding for the Endeavour Fund, Health Research Fund, Marsden Fund, the Research and Development Growth Grants MYA, and
  • the Support Package to enable New Zealand to host the 36th America's Cup.

The decrease in Output Expenses from 2020/21 and out-years is due to:

  • a drop in funding associated with the 36th America's Cup, and
  • reduced funding in out-years for the Implementation of Improvements in Public Sector Procurement and Services to Business appropriation.
Other Expenses

The increase in expenditure between 2017/18 and 2019/20 is due to:

  • additional funding allocated to the New Zealand Screen Production Grant - International MYA
  • additional funding for tourism infrastructure costs that will be collected from the International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Visitor Levy (IVL), and
  • additional funding for the Telecommunications Infrastructure Investment MYA.

The decrease in expenditure from 2020/21 and out-years relates to:

  • a drop in funding for the New Zealand Screen Production Grant - International MYA
  • a drop in funding for the Telecommunications Infrastructure Investment MYA, and
  • a drop in funding for the Regional Digital Connectivity Improvements MYA.

This is partially offset by new funding allocated towards the Large Budget Screen Production Fund in 2021/22.

Capital Expenditure

The decrease in Capital Expenditure between 2015/16 and 2016/17 relates to decreased expenditure for Crown Infrastructure Partners, to fund the Ultra-Fast Broadband initiative. Funding for the initiative increases between 2018/19 and 2019/20 and then drops from 2019/20 onwards.

Additionally the decrease in Capital Expenditure is attributable to:

  • One off funding for the Transfer of Investments and Capital investments in the Regional Economic Development portfolio for 2019/20 only, and
  • a drop in capital funding for Callaghan Innovation in out-years.
Multi-Category Expenses and Capital Expenditure

The increase in Multi-Category Other Expenses between 2018/19 and 2019/20 is due to additional grants funding for the Provincial Growth Fund while the decrease in Output Expenses from 2019/20 into out-years is due to a drop in funding for the Provincial Growth Fund.

The decrease in Multi-Category Capital Expenditure between 2019/20 and out-years is due to funding for loans and equity investments associated with the Provincial Growth Fund ending.

Crown Revenue and Capital Receipts

The fluctuating trend in Non-Tax Revenue is primarily due to movements in revenue collected from petroleum royalties and criminal asset recovery.

The increase in capital receipts is due to the sale of radio spectrum rights and the amount collected remains at a similar level into out-years.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The decrease in this appropriation for 2020/21 is mainly due to:

  • a majority of grant funding forecasted to be spent in 2019/20. It is possible this will be delayed and a request made to transfer this into 2020/21, and
  • a one off capital expenditure increase in 2019/20 to account for the Crown's investment in Provincial Growth Fund Limited.
