The income and expenditure account for 2009 shows total expenditure of CHF 85.4 million. Of this, 68% related to functional expenditure and 32% to transfer expenditure. Functional expenditure includes OFCOM's financial expenditure on personnel and resources, cost allocation for the services of other federal offices and non-financial depreciation of assets. Transfer expenditure includes the subsidies in the radio and television sector and contributions to international organisations.
The income which can be allocated to the 2009 financial year amounts to CHF 59.8 million. Of this 44% related to functional revenue and 56% to revenue outside the global budget. The functional revenue corresponds to OFCOM's administrative fees. The revenue outside the global budget includes the radio licence fees (at CHF 30 million, i.e. 90%, this represents the largest part), the licence fees of the licensed radio and television broadcasters for special financing in the radio and television sector, plus the revenue from violations of the law (fines and surrender of profits).
In 2009, total expenditure was CHF 25.6 million (30%) higher than total income. In the transfer area, there was surplus income in relation to expenditure (27.7 million) and revenue (32.7 million). In the functional area, the functional expenditure (57.7 million) exceeded the functional revenue (administrative fees: CHF 26.3 million) by CHF 31.4 million (55%).
Total income in comparison with the previous year was up CHF 7.4 million.
CHF 7.7 million surpluses can be allocated to administrative fees and licence fees, respectively. These are essentially attributable to regular additional receipts relating to administrative and licence fees, the liquidation of provisions for time credits and an extraordinary receipt for 2008 amounting to CHF 3.8 million in relation to licence fees.
Lower revenue of CHF 0.6 million was attributable to licence fees in relation to radio and television.
Total expenditure in comparison with the previous year was up by CHF 4.4 million.
Of this, OFCOM's functional expenditure (global budget area) was up by CHF 3.4 million on the previous year.
Above all, this is attributable to the fact that personnel costs rose by CHF 2.6 million owing to several personnel measures (+1.1% inflation allowance; +2.5% for management salaries from salary category 24 to 29 and +5% from salary category 30; payments for flexitime of 5%; bonuses of CHF 230,000 plus the normal salary increases for employees with assessment grade 3 who have not yet reached the maximum; new family allowances and risk contributions (for invalidity and death) to the federal pension fund (Publica). Operating expenditure increased by CHF 1 million - primarily due to consultancy services, studies, maintenance work and infrastructure replacement.
Expenditure outside the global budget for subsidies was CHF 1 million higher than in the previous year. Above all, this is attributable to the fact that for the organisation of the world telecoms fair (ITU Telecom World 2009 in Geneva) the cost for contributions to international organisations increased by CHF 1.35 million within the framework of a supplement. The additional requirement for resources was met from OFCOM's global budget.
Moreover, various reduced costs balanced the above-mentioned extra expenditure. In this context, it is worth mentioning the reduced expenditure for the foreign offering of the SRG SSR idée suisse (swissinfo, 3sat and TV5) to the value of CHF 0.6 million.
