2.2 Income from transactions

2.2.1 Grants

Department of Health and Human Services 1,519
Department of Premier and Cabinet 301
1,820

Grant income arises from transactions in which a party provides goods or assets (or extinguishes a liability) to the Authority without receiving approximately equal value in return. While grants may result in the provision of some goods or services to the transferring party, they do not provide a claim to receive benefits directly of approximately equal value (and are termed ‘nonreciprocal’ transfers). Receipt and sacrifice of approximately equal value may occur, but only by coincidence.
