• Quarterly Financial Results Report – September 2018 

    This Quarterly Financial Results Report provides financial results for the Western Australian public sector for the three months to 30 September 2018.

    The general government sector recorded an operating deficit of $100 million for the three months to 30 September 2018, a significantly stronger outcome compared with the $669 million deficit reported for the same period last year. For the total public sector, infrastructure spending for the first three months of 2018-19 totalled $1.1 billion, while net debt stood at $35 billion at 30 September 2018, up $399 million on the level recorded at 30 June 2018.

    Care should be exercised in extrapolating the likely outcome for the 2018-19 year based on the results to date, particularly in light of the seasonal and other timing factors that impact the State’s finances. An update of the forecasts for 2018-19 and forward estimates will be provided in the 2018-19 Government Mid-year Financial Projections Statement (due for release in late December 2018).
