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 2015, sets a new rate for the salary of the Governor-General. The determination is made under the Governor-General Act 2010, which provides for the Governor-General’s salary to be determined from time to time by the Remuneration Authority. The Governor-General’s salary is not exempt from income tax and has been set on this basis.

In this determination, the Authority has adjusted the salary to $348,000 a year, in line with adjustments made by the Authority in 2015 for the other senior offices for which it sets remuneration.

The determination replaces the Governor-General (Salary) Determination (No 2) 2014, which expired on 31 October 2015. The determination is for a year from 1 November 2015. The making of the determination was delayed beyond the expiry of the previous determination in order to allow the Remuneration Authority to carry out preparatory work on the determination.

This determination expires on the close of 31 October 2016.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 10 December 2015.
