Personnel expenses

The Treasury publishes annual Financial Statements of the Government. These statements include personnel expenditure, which covers total remuneration paid by employers to employees, and includes payments such as wages, superannuation contributions and leave entitlements. Personnel expenditure[1] for core Crown government agencies has increased by 5.1% in 2015, while the total Crown personnel expenditure (that also includes Crown entities and SOEs) has increased by 3.1% (Table 3.1). Definitions for Core Crown and Total Crown are given in Appendix 6.
