2.4         Temporary Classifier:  Where a person is appointed to the Classification Board as a Temporary Classifier, a daily fee of $473 is payable from 1 July 2011, in lieu of other provisions in this Part.  The provisions of Part 3 (Allowances), Part 5 (Recreation leave) and Part 6 (Compensation for early loss of office) do not apply.
 
2.5         Remuneration packaging:  Subject to this Part, an Office Holder may elect to receive the value of remuneration as salary or as a combination of salary and Benefits.  The Office Holder must take at least 50 per cent of Superannuation Salary as salary, except where agency policies and procedures on salary packaging allow otherwise.  Any election must be consistent with relevant taxation laws and rulings or guidelines applicable to salary packaging schemes issued by the Australian Taxation Office.  Any election must not result in a cost to the employer (including in relation to any fringe benefits taxation) additional to the cost which would be incurred if Benefits able to be taken as salary were taken as salary.
 
2.6         Superannuation Salary:  Regardless of anything else in this Determination, salary for superannuation purposes will be the Base Salary plus any additional amount shown in Column 4 of Table 2A where the relevant sub-clause specifies that the loading is included as superannuation salary.  This will be:
 
·           the Office Holder’s annual rate of salary for the purposes of the Superannuation (CSS) Regulations, (and therefore the superannuation salary for the purposes of the Superannuation Act 1976 and the Superannuation Act 1990); or
 
·           in the case of the holders of the offices of Vice-Chief of the Defence Force, Chief of Navy, Chief of Air Force, Chief of Army and Director of Military Prosecutions, that officer holder’s annual rate of salary for the purposes of the Defence Force Retirement and Death Benefits Act 1973, the Defence Force Retirement and Death Benefits (Annual Rate of Pay) Regulations, the Military Superannuation and Benefits Scheme Act 1991 and the Rules of the Military Superannuation and Benefits Scheme.
 
2.6.1    APRA: Notwithstanding the above provisions, the salary for superannuation               purposes of Dr John Laker will be $533,880 from 1 July 2011, while he occupies                      the office of Chair, Australian Prudential Regulation Authority.
 
2.7     Employer Superannuation Support:  Total Remuneration will be taken to include the         Superannuation Support provided by the employer in respect of an Office Holder, which        has the value ascertained under sub-clause 2.7.1 or the amount of contributions under         sub-clause 2.7.2. Contributions made on a salary sacrifice basis do not form part of       Superannuation Support; these are covered by clause 2.5 (Remuneration packaging).
 
 2.7.1  Defined Benefits Schemes:  In the case of an Office Holder who may be eligible for           defined benefits under a Commonwealth superannuation scheme, the value of                       Superannuation Support will be taken to be 15.4 per cent of Base Salary. 
 
 2.7.2  Other Schemes:  In the case of an Office Holder not covered by sub-clause 2.7.1,              the value of Superannuation Support will be the contributions actually paid, or liable        to be paid, by the employer in respect of the Office Holder to a superannuation                       scheme.
 
 2.7.3  No cash in lieu:  The value attributable by virtue of this clause to Superannuation                 Support is referable to a non-salary component of Total Remuneration and may not      be the subject of an election to take an equivalent amount of salary instead.
 
2.8       Vehicles:  Where an Office Holder accepts an offer of an agency owned or leased vehicle for private use, the office holder’s Total Remuneration will be reduced by the  actual cost of the vehicle to the agency plus parking and fringe benefits taxation, less a  reasonable amount (if any) reflecting business usage patterns.  Where an Office Holder has access to an agency owned or leased vehicle for private use, the Office Holder will be considered to have accepted an offer of a vehicle for the purposes of this provision. Any business usage amount is to be assessed on log book records for at least a 12 week representative period.  Where the annual business kilometres are less than 5,000 it will be based on the ‘cents per kilometre’ method. Where business kilometres are 5,000 kilometres or more, the percentage of business use to total kilometres travelled per annum will be applied to the total cost of the vehicle.
 
 2.9    Classification Board: On any occasion when the Deputy Director acts as Director, he                 or she will be entitled to the remuneration and other conditions determined for the                          Director.
 
2.10  Business Support: Where an Office Holder is provided with communications,                      information technology and other office facilities necessary for the efficient conduct of        his or her office, incidental private use of those facilities by the office holder does not    necessitate the value of the facilities being included in Total Remuneration.
 
2.11      Fair Work Australia: Where an appointee as Deputy President or Commissioner of Fair Work Australia is a Judge, the comparative salary for the purposes of s.637(6) of the Fair Work Act 2009 is the amount in Column 2.
PART 3 – ALLOWANCES
 
3.1         Accommodation Allowance:  The Office Holders listed in Column 1 of Table 3A will be eligible to receive an accommodation allowance (subject to expenditure) as shown in Column 3 of Table 3A whilst they occupy the office shown in Column 2.  This amount is to assist the Office Holder in meeting settling-in and commercial rental accommodation costs (including one-off utility connection costs) in the office location:
(a)  while they also continue to have a property other than in the office location, as their principal place of residence; and
(b)  it will not be paid for such periods that they live in premises owned by them at the office location.
An Office Holder will not be eligible to access travel allowance entitlements in the home locality or the office locality whilst they remain eligible to receive the accommodation allowance.  However, where in terms of the ongoing arrangement it would clearly be more cost effective for the agency to provide travel allowance entitlements in the office locality, the agency should decide at the earliest practical opportunity to pay travel allowance rather than the accommodation allowance.
 
Where the commercial accommodation does not include cooking facilities, the cost of meals may form part of the payment, within the accommodation cap set for an Office Holder.
