Since 2008-09 the statements have been prepared in accordance with Australian Accounting Standard AASB 1049 – Whole of Government and General Government Sector Financial Reporting, which requires accounting treatment based on the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ (ABS) Government Finance Statistics (GFS) except where Australian Accounting Standards (AAS) provide a better conceptual treatment for specific items.
