|Guide for use:|
Payments are to be reported at the lowest statistical unit level at which the expenditure occurred (state/territory or region level), and should not be reported at more than one level.
Non-government organisations receiving payments for more than one service type should apportion amounts to the service type categories based on the specific provisions of the payment.
Payments for Staffed residential services (Code 7 in the Service type data element) must exclude any payments reported as expenditure elsewhere, such as residential service unit expenditure, organisational, regional or state level indirect expenditure.
Payments not allocatable to specific service types should be reported under other and unspecified services payments to non-government organisations (Code 88 in the Service type data element).
Where the exact dollar amount for services is unable to be provided an estimate should be derived from available local information.
Data reported as payments to non-government organisations should exclude any capital expenditure payments, where the primary purpose of the payment is known to be specifically for the purpose of capital investment.
