1.3 - Analysis of Significant Trends

Adjustments to the Summary of Financial Activity Table due to Vote Restructuring

There has been no restructuring adjustments to prior year information reported in last year's Summary of Financial Activity.

The movement in Other Expenses reflects fluctuations in the disposals work programme on behalf of New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA).

Multi Category Expenses and Capital Expenditure have increased significantly from 2015/16 onwards as some of the functions of the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority were transferred to Land Information New Zealand (LINZ), including demolition recoveries, management and clearance of land and removal of structures or making structures safe.

The fluctuation in output expenses is due to the increase in activity in the Overseas Investment Office.

Total Appropriation4,3003,1803,957

What is Intended to be Achieved with this Appropriation

This appropriation is intended to achieve payment of rates on Crown land and surplus government properties administered by the Department on behalf of the Crown.

How Performance will be Assessed and End of Year Reporting Requirements

This appropriation is solely for the payment of rates on Crown land. An exemption was granted under s.15D(2)(b)(ii) of the Public Finance Act 1989 because end of year performance information for this appropriation is not likely to be informative.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The decrease in this appropriation for 2017/18 is due to a one-off transfer from the Crown Acquisitions - Huntly east appropriation to address cost pressures in the 2016/17 year. This is a return to the expected on-going expenditure for this appropriation.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The increase in this appropriation for 2017/18 is because the timing and volume of these purchases are uncertain and outside of LINZ's control. No purchases were required in the 2016/17 year, therefore funding has been transferred from 2016/17 into 2017/18.

  • $3.846 million for an expense transfer from 2015/16 into 2016/17 related to the timing of the acquisitions programme, and

End of Year Performance Reporting

Performance information for this appropriation will be reported by Land Information New Zealand in the 2017/18 Annual Report.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The decrease in this appropriation for 2017/18 is mainly due to:

  • a decrease of $46.629 million for Purchase of Land and Improvements - Capital due to completion of a significant amount of this work programme in 2016/17
  • a decrease of $36.340 million for Acquisition and disposal expenses, Managing the recovery, Clearance of built structures and associated works, Initial write down in the value of land and improvements, Mass movement of land and the Purchase of land and improvements - operational appropriations due to the completion of a significant amount of the work programmes for these areas in 2016/17, and
  • this is partially offset by an increase of $8.147 million for Management and Clearance of Land due to the timing of work which is dependent on future use decisions in the Residential Red Zone.
