During First Half 2019, Westpac adopted AASB 9 Financial Instruments (AASB 9) and AASB 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers (AASB15). As the Group applied these standards prospectively, comparatives have not been restated for reported results and are therefore not directly comparable across periods. Reported net profit attributable to owners of Westpac Banking Corporation for First Half 2019 also included significant provisions for estimated customer payments, refunds and associated costs, and costs associated with the restructuring of the Group’s wealth business. These provisions reduced net profit after tax by $753 million and are referred to as “notable items” in this document. Full details are available in Westpac’s 2019 Interim Financial Results Announcement on Form 6-K for the six months ended 31 March 2019 filed with the SEC.
