Revenue is measured at the fair value of consideration received or receivable.
Revenue is recognised as follows.
Revenue from the Crown
Revenue from the Crown transactions are considered to be non-exchange transactions.
Revenue from the Crown is measured based on Inland Revenue’s funding entitlement for the reporting period. The funding entitlement is established by Parliament when it passes the Appropriation Acts for the financial year. The amount of revenue recognised takes into account any amendments to appropriations approved in the Appropriation (Supplementary Estimates) Act for the year and certain other unconditional funding adjustments formally approved prior to balance date.
Inland Revenue can incur expenses only within the scope and limits of its appropriations.
The fair value of revenue from the Crown is considered equivalent to the funding entitlement.
Explanation of major variance from budget
Revenue from the Crown was lower than budget by $167.067 million. The variance is primarily due to funding that was transferred from 2020-21 to 2021-22 to reflect the timing of the last transformation programme release later in 2021 and the wrap up of the programme by 30 June 2022.
Other revenue transactions as outlined below are considered to be exchange transactions.
Revenue from recoveries
Revenue from recoveries is recognised as revenue when earned.
Sale of services
The sale of services is recognised in the accounting period in which the services are provided.
Rental revenue from sub-leases
Rental revenue from sub-leased property is recognised as revenue on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease.
