Accounting policy

The administered cash flow statement represents the total cash received or paid through primary operating activities of the ATO, and accordingly categories disclosed above are treated on a net basis. For example, a refund relating to income tax is defined as an overpayment of tax and treated as a reduction to the income tax category. Positive amounts represent an inflow and negative amounts represent an outflow for the relevant category. More detailed information in relation to refunds can be found in Note 19C special appropriations.
