The following tables provide an analysis of assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value. The different levels of the fair value hierarchy are defined below.

Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets and liabilities that the FWBII can access at
measurement date.
Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices that are included within Level 1 and which are observable for the assets or liabilities,
either directly or indirectly.
Level 3 Unobservable inputs for the assets or liabilities.

1.5 yrs – 1.7 yrs (1.6 yrs) The significant unobservable inputs used in the fair value measurement of the Agency’s leasehold improvements and property, plant and equipment asset classes relate to the consumed economic benefit / asset obsolescence. A significant increase (decrease) in this input would result in a significantly lower (higher) fair value measurement.

Fair value measurements – highest and best use differs from current use for non-financial assets (NFAs)

The FWBII’s assets are held for operational purposes and not held for the purposes of deriving a profit. The current use of all controlled assets is considered their highest and best use.

Recurring and non-recurring Level 3 fair value measurements – valuation process

The FWBII procured valuation services from Australian Valuation Office (AVO) at 30 June 2013 and relied on valuation models provided by AVO.

There is no significant change in the valuation technique since the prior year.

Note 6B: Level 1 and Level 2 Transfers for Recurring Fair Value Measurements

There have been no fair value measurements transfers between level 1 and level 2 during the year.

The Agency’s policy for determining when transfers between levels of the fair value hierarchy are deemed to have occurred can be found in Note 1.11.
