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 2013, 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. Under the Act, the salary of the Governor-General is set on the basis that it is not exempt from income tax.

This is the third determination made by the Authority under the Act. In this determination, the Authority has adjusted the salary to $330,000 a year, in line with adjustments made by the Authority in 2013 for the other senior offices for which it sets remuneration.

The determination replaces the Governor-General (Salary) Determination 2013, which expired on 31 October 2013. The determination is for a year from 1 November 2014. 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.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 1 May 2014.
