304 Revenue Sales of Goods and Services The sales of goods and services includes fees and charges levied on regulatory functions, the provision of certain services, and the issue of licences and permits to carry out otherwise prohibited or restricted activities. Goods and services revenue is primarily collected by Government to recoup costs, particularly regulation costs. This category also includes charges paid by one agency or government business division to another. The main charges for 2012-13 are: Construction Division infrastructure project management costs ($55.9million); Department of Housing, Local Government and Regional Services rental and tenancy charges ($49.9million); NT Fleet provision and management of government vehicles ($48.5million); Darwin Port Corporation wharfage and berthage charges for commercial shipping ($29.6million); and Data Centre Services computing and communication services to government agencies ($24million). Overall, the sales of goods and services revenue comprises 8.5 per cent of total revenue in 2012-13. Revenue received from sales of goods and services is expected to increase by $20million in 2012-13. The more significant variations are: Land Development Corporation goods and services revenue is expected to increase by $34million in 2012-13 associated with developments in the new Palmerston suburbs of Johnston and Zuccoli and at Maluka Drive; Construction Division goods and services revenue is expected to decrease by $5.2million in 2012-13 due to decreased revenue from project management fees in line with a lower capital works program in 2012-13; Department of Business and Employment goods and services revenue is expected to decrease by $3.9million due to shared corporate services management charges in 2012-13; Darwin Port Corporation expects an increase of $1.7million reflecting some additional trade volumes; Department of Health goods and services revenue is expected to decrease by $1.7million in 2012-13, due to one-off program revenue received in 2011-12; and Northern Territory Electoral Commission goods and services revenue is expected to decrease by $1.6million in 2012-13 due to one-off revenue received for local government elections in 2011-12.
