GOVERNMENT FINANCIAL INFORMATION
The Treasury is responsible for publishing the Government’s accounts. Two sets of accounts are published each year – the unaudited Detailed Government Accounts and the audited, statutory Annual Accounts. These documents are published annually and on an aggregated basis, being presented in a consistent format each year.
This website provides both a greater level of detail of the Government’s financial information and is updated multiple times during the year in order to provide a greater level of information on the Government’s finances.
The information is available through the following two reports:
- Summary Budget Report
- Detailed Revenue Report
The information is presented using the same classification systems used within the Government’s central finance system. These enable the information to be presented by combinations of (i) income and expenditure type and (ii) organisation unit. Income and expenditure is shown gross – the Government Budget is presented with some expenditure being reduced by corresponding income for some organisation units.
The underlying financial data is updated quarterly for the quarters ending 30 June, 30 September and 31 December. The update will normally be completed by the end of the month following the quarter-end (i.e. 31 July, 31 October and 31 January). 31 March is Government’s year-end and completion of the underlying data normally takes some time. In this case the data will be published once the Detailed Government Accounts have been laid before Tynwald (normally July each year).
Summary Budget Report
This report provides the financial results of Government in the same format as the Budget Detailed Revenue Estimates Report as set out in the Isle of Man’s annual Budget (‘The Pink Book’).
The purpose of the report is to report the finances of Government in a manner that enables a simple comparison to the budget. Detailed budgets can be updated by Departments during the year, though changes to a Department’s overall budget requires Tynwald approval.
Detailed Revenue Report
This report provides the income and expenditure for Government analysed both by department and by income or expense category.
Further analysis and detail can be obtained by ‘clicking’ on the chosen item and ‘drilling down’ to the next level of detail.
It is possible to view information at Government level or by ‘drilling down’ view the results at department, division or sub-division level (3 levels). Income and expense categories can also be analysed down through 3 levels of detail.
