• Quarterly Financial Results Report - December 2016

    This Quarterly Financial Results Report provides financial results for the Western Australian public sector for the six months to 31 December 2016.

    While care should be exercised in extrapolating the likely outcome for the 2016-17 year based on the results to date, the December results are broadly consistent with the full-year estimates contained in the 2016-17 Pre-election Financial Projections Statement (released on 9 February 2017).

    The general government sector recorded an operating deficit of $1,445 million for the six months to 31 December 2016, compared to a $989 million deficit reported for the same period in 2015-16.

    • Revenue for the first six months of 2016-17 was $135 million (or 1%) higher when compared to revenue collected in the same period last year.
    • Expenses for the six months to 31 December 2016 totalled $14.6 billion, $591 million (or 4.2%) higher than the same period in 2015-16.

    Infrastructure spending during the first six months of 2016-17 totalled $2.9 billion, $281 million less than the same period last year.
