The RBA has commenced a process for the sale of its office property in Melbourne. The decision to sell the property via market follows a review of the RBA's property assets and its operational requirements. Completion of the sale is expected in the first half of 2018/19. Accordingly, the property has been reclassified as being held for sale, as required by AASB 5, and disclosed as part of Other Assets (see Note 1(k)). The property was disclosed as part of property, plant and equipment at 30 June 2017 (refer to Note 8).
