Fees-collection

(Question No 171)

Mr Humphries asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 4 June 2002:

(1) What is the quantum of fees collected in the ACT for the current financial year as at 31 March 2002?

(2) Is the quantum of fees collected as at 31 March 2002 greater or less than the estimates prepared for the 2001 ACT Budget?

(3) What has been the trend in the payment of fees during the period between 1 October 2001 and 31 March 2002?

(4) How has this pattern of payment of fees varied from the same period in the previous financial year?

(5) What has been the basis for any changes in the pattern of payments of fees between this and the previous financial year?

Mr Quinlan: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

Please note: answers are written in respect of Consolidated Financial Statements for the General Government Sector

(1) The total amount of fees recognised as revenue in the ACT, as at 31 March 2002, was $72.0m.

(2) The 2001 ACT Budget forecast fees totalling $90.1m to be collected during the 2001-02 financial year. As at 31 March 2002, collections of $72.0m represented 80% the original budget estimate (76% of the estimated outcome).

(3) Total fees, as at 1 October 2001 was $26.3m. The average collection, per month, during the period 1 October 2001 to 31 March 2002 was $7.6m.

As seen from the table above, the pattern of fees revenue remains broadly the same.

(5) There has been no significant change in the pattern of collection of fees between this and the previous financial year, other than a decrease in monthly collections (from 2000-01) for Motor Vehicle Registration reflecting the MVR revenue initiative of the 2001-02 Budget which reduced the total MVR revenue by $10m.
