Accounts payable and accrued liabilities
This section contains information on accounts reported on the Consolidated statement of financial position under "Accounts payable and accrued liabilities". The establishment and operation of these accounts are authorized by Parliament in annual appropriation acts and other legislation. In many cases, these accounts represent accounts payable, accruals and allowances set up at year end under the authority granted to the President of the Treasury Board under the Financial Administration Act.
Table 5.1 presents the year-end balances of accounts payable and accrued liabilities by category. Chart 5A presents accounts payable and accrued liabilities by category at March 31.
Most tables in this section present the continuity of accounts, by showing the opening and closing balances. A narrative description is provided for accounts reported in some tables. Such descriptions follow the same presentation order as their respective tables.
The table presents, in dollars, a two-year comparative of the year-end balances of accounts payable and accrued liabilities by category. It consists of three columns: a detailed listing of components; current year ended March 31st; previous year ended March 31. A final row presents the total for this table.
