Non-Profit Distributing (NPD), Public Private Partnerships (PPP) and Private Finance Initiative (PFI) transactions are accounted for in accordance with IFRIC 12, Service Concession Arrangements which sets out how NPD/PPP/PFI transactions are to be accounted for in the private sector.

A transaction is deemed to be 'on balance sheet' (i.e. included in Statement of Financial Position) when:

  • the grantor controls or regulates what services the operator must provide with the infrastructure, to whom it must provide them and at what price; and
  • the grantor controls - through ownership, beneficial entitlement or otherwise - any significant residual interest in the infrastructure at the end of the term of the agreement.

Where the transaction is deemed to be 'on balance sheet', the substance of that contract is that the Scottish Government has a finance lease, with the asset being recognised as a fixed asset in the Scottish Government's Statement of Financial Position.
