89 (o) Employee Benefits Provision is made for employee benefits accumulated as a result of employees rendering services up to the reporting date. These benefits include wages and salaries and recreation leave. Liabilities arising in respect of wages and salaries and recreation leave and other employee benefit liabilities that fall due within 12 months of reporting date are classified as current liabilities and are measured at amounts expected to be paid. Non-current employee benefit liabilities that fall due after 12 months of the reporting date are measured at present value, calculated using the Government long-term bond rate. No provision is made for sick leave, which is non-vesting, as the anticipated pattern of future sick leave to be taken is less than the entitlement accruing in each reporting period. Employee benefit expenses are recognised on a net basis in the following categories: wages and salaries, non-monetary benefits, recreation leave, sick leave and other leave entitlements; and other types of employee benefits. As part of the introduction of Working for Outcomes, the Central Holding Authority assumed the long service leave liabilities of Government agencies, including the Department of Justice, and as such no long service leave liability is recognised in any agency financial statements. (p) Superannuation Employees' superannuation entitlements are provided through the: NT Government and Public Authorities Superannuation Scheme (NTGPASS); Commonwealth Superannuation Scheme (CSS); or non-government employee nominated schemes for those employees commencing on or after 10 August 1999. The agency makes superannuation contributions on behalf of its employees to the Central Holding Authority or non-government employee nominated schemes. Superannuation liabilities related to government superannuation schemes are held by the Central Holding Authority and as such are not recognised in agency financial statements. (q) Contributions by and Distributions to Government The agency may receive contributions from Government where the Government is acting as owner of the agency. Conversely, the agency may make distributions to Government. In accordance with the Financial Management Act and Treasurers Directions, certain types of contributions and distributions, including those relating to administrative restructures, have been designated as contributions by, and distributions to, Government. These designated contributions and distributions are treated by the agency as adjustments to equity. The Statement of Changes in Equity and note 13 provide additional information in relation to contributions by, and distributions to, Government. (r) Commitments Disclosures in relation to capital and other commitments, including lease commitments, are shown at note 16 and are consistent with the requirements contained in AASB 101, AASB 117 and AAS 29. Commitments are those contracted as at 30 June where the amount of the future commitment can be reliably measured. Annual Report 2005 2006 / Financial Statements
