Record values up to hundreds of millions of dollars. Rounded to the nearest whole dollar.

For admitted patient care settings, depreciation is to be disaggregated by specialised mental health service program type and specialised mental health service target population, together.

Comments:Help on this term

With the long-term trend towards accrual accounting in the public sector, this metadata item will ultimately become significant for public sector establishments. Public sector establishments in some states have adopted modified accrual accounting identifying depreciation only, before reaching full accrual accounting. Depreciation is now reported for most public sector establishments and should be reported as a separate recurrent expenditure.

Depreciation should be identified separately from other recurrent expenditure categories.
