Footnote*From 2010-11, the Australian Government introduced net cash appropriation arrangements, where revenue appropriations for depreciation / amortisation expenses ceased. Entities now receive a separate capital budget provided through equity appropriations. Capital budgets are to be appropriated in the period when cash payments for capital expenditure is required.
