The Department administers the collection of taxes, fees and fines, other non-taxation revenue and interest and dividends estimated at $585.2m in 2017–18, representing an increase of $128.9m from Budget. The increase is due to new revenue for the Western Sydney Airport of $146.1m offset by a decrease in estimated dividends from the Australian Rail Track Corporation ($22.5m).
Administered expenses are budgeted at $4,010.0m in 2017–18, representing an increase of $117.8m from Budget and will be incurred for the administered items set out at Section 2. The increase is the result of measures announced since Budget ($20.1m), combined with the movement of administered funds ($32.0m) and other Government decisions approved since Budget ($66.1m).
