1.3         Effect on Earlier Determinations:  This Determination supersedes and revokes in full Determination 2012/13 (as amended) – Remuneration and Allowances for Holders of Part-Time Public Office and also supersedes and revokes the following Determinations (that amended 2012/13): 2012/17, 2012/20, 2012/22, 2012/23, 2012/25, 2013/02, 2013/03, 2013/04, 2013/05.
 
1.4         Definitions:  In this Determination, unless the context clearly indicates otherwise:

‘business of the authority’ means any business of the authority conducted by an office-holder with the approval of the authority, other than attendance at a formal meeting and the preparation time for that meeting, except as specified in Clause 2.9;
 
‘office-holder’ means the holder of a part-time public office;
 
‘public office’ has the same meaning as in the Remuneration Tribunal Act 1973.
 
 
PART 2 – FEES
 
2.1         Specified Offices:  The fees set out in Schedules A, B, C, D, E and F apply to the holders of the public offices specified in those schedules.  They are inclusive of the amount necessary to meet any taxation obligation in respect of these fees.

(b)         be consistent with relevant taxation laws and rulings or guidelines applicable to remuneration packaging schemes issued by the Australian Taxation Office; and
 
(c)         not result in any cost to the Commonwealth (including in relation to any fringe benefits taxation) additional to the cost which would be incurred if benefits able to be taken as fees were taken as fees.

2.13    Daily Fees – travelling on non-meeting days: Where an office holder must undertake official travel on a non-meeting day, the chairperson or nominated presiding officer may determine that the office holder is engaged on business of the authority for the period of that travel and is therefore entitled to receive all or part of the daily fee in accordance with subclause 2.10.1 and 2.10.2.
