  6. AUDIENCE QUESTION • What is a transfer and when will it be recorded in the financial system of a government department? • Transfers and subsidies include all unrequited payments made by the government unit. A payment is unrequited provided that the government unit does not receive anything of similar value directly in return for the transfer to the other party. Examples of transfers will be social security benefits paid to households, fines, penalties, compulsory fees and compensation for injuries or damages paid to another unit.

  7. AUDIENCE QUESTION • How would a department allocate amounts payable to insurance companies for insurance premiums taken on assets in terms of Treasury Regulation 12.1.2? • In terms of international classification standards non-life insurance premiums are recorded as transfers and not as payments for goods and services because the party who will be making the payment will not be sure if they will receive any benefits for the payment and it may also not bear any relation to the premium that was paid. In the standard chart of accounts the payment will be recorded under transfers to private enterprises other transfers, non-life insurance premiums TR 12.1.2 BAS segment code 1976
