Establishment—recurrent expenditure (interest payments) (financial year), total Australian currency N[N(8)]
Identifying and definitional attributes
Metadata item type:
Recurrent expenditure—interest payments
Health, Standard 01/03/2005
Payments in Australian dollars made by or on behalf of the establishment in respect of borrowings (e.g. interest on bank overdraft) provided the establishment is permitted to borrow, for a financial year.
Record values up to hundreds of millions of dollars. Rounded to nearest whole dollar.
The item would not have been retained if the data set was restricted to the public sector. In some States, public hospitals may not be permitted to borrow funds or it may be entirely a State treasury matter, not identifiable by the health authority. Even where public sector establishment borrowings might be identified, this appears to be a sensitive area and also of less overall significance than in the private sector.
