Why we include the non-departmental schedules
Inland Revenue collects and distributes money on behalf of the Crown and the following non-departmental schedules provide information on the financial extent of these activities. The Commissioner is accountable for the financial management of these activities.
2021-22 non-departmental tax revenue totalled $100.6 billion and comprises tax returns and accruals. The majority of this amount is expected to be collected and will be used to fund government programmes. 2021-22 non-departmental expenses incurred were $9.8 billion, including Working for Families Tax Credits, KiwiSaver member tax credits, interest, the COVID-19 Resurgence Support Payment, the COVID-19 Support Payment and other expenses.
What non-departmental schedules are and are not
The non-departmental schedules are prepared in accordance with relevant accounting policies and the Treasury instructions to disclose non-departmental activities.
The non-departmental schedules do not, and are not intended to, constitute a set of financial statements and, therefore, do not include elements that would normally be expected to be found in financial statements, such as details of a surplus or deficit or Statement of financial position.
