Explanatory memorandum

This memorandum is not part of the determination, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This determination, which is deemed to have come into force on 1 November 2012, sets a new rate for the salary of the Governor-General. The determination is made under the Governor-General Act 2010 (the Act), which provides for the Governor-General's salary to be determined from time to time by the Remuneration Authority.

The Act replaces those parts of the Civil List Act 1979 relating to remuneration for the Governor-General. That Act provided for the salary of the Governor-General to be set on the basis that it was exempt from income tax, and provided for a tax-free allowance covering both official programme expenses and personal expenses. Under the Act, the salary of the Governor-General is set on the basis that it is not exempt from income tax. The Act also makes certain changes to the allowance of the Governor-General, and to the funding of the Governor-General's programme, which are relevant to the setting of salary.

This is the second determination made by the Authority under the Act. The first determination, made in July 2011, made a number of adjustments to the way in which the Governor-General's salary is set, consistent with the provisions of the Act. These adjustments are described in the explanatory memorandum to the July 2011 determination. That determination covered the period from 1 August 2011 to 31 October 2012 and set a salary of $311,000 a year. In this determination, the Authority has adjusted the salary to $318,775 a year, in line with adjustments made by the Authority in 2012–2013 for the other senior offices for which it sets remuneration.

This determination expires on 31 October 2013.


Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 6 June 2013.
