Schedule 5         Remuneration -- formula for biennial increase

(regulation 15B)

   

1              Definitions

                In this Schedule:

"CPI number" means the All Groups Consumer Price Index number (being the weighted average of the 8 Australian capital cities) published by the Australian Statistician.

"March quarter" means a period of 3 months ending at the end of March.

relevant period means any of the following periods:

                (a)    the 2 year period starting on 1 July 2008;

               (b)    each 2 year period starting on a biennial anniversary of 1 July 2008.

"remuneration" means an amount specified in Schedule 4.

2              Calculation of remuneration

                If, in a relevant period, the latest CPI number is greater than the earlier CPI number, remuneration increases, on 1 July immediately following the end of the period, in accordance with the formula:

where:

"remuneration" is the amount in force at the end of the relevant period.

"latest CPI number" is the CPI number for the last March quarter before the end of the relevant period.

"earlier CPI number" is the CPI number for the last March quarter before the start of the relevant period.

3              Rounding of calculations

                If, apart from this clause, remuneration increased under clause 2 would be an amount of dollars and cents, the amount is taken to be rounded to the nearest whole dollar and, if the amount to be rounded is 50 cents, rounded down.

4              Substitution of CPI number

                Subject to clause 5, if, at any time before or after the commencement of this Schedule, the Australian Statistician publishes for a particular March quarter a CPI number in substitution for a CPI number previously published for that quarter by the Statistician, the publication of the later number is disregarded for the purposes of this Schedule.

5              Change of reference base

                If, at any time before or after the commencement of this Schedule, the Australian Statistician changes the reference base for the Consumer Price Index, then, in applying this Schedule after the change is made, regard may be had only to CPI numbers published in terms of the new reference base.
