Key definitions

The 'Average reportable salary' column is prepared on a cash basis using reportable salary defined as the sum of:

  1. gross payments (excluding bonuses);
  2. reportable fringe benefits (net amount);
  3. reportable employer superannuation contributions, and
  4. exempt foreign employment income

as reported in an individual's payment summary.

The 'Average contributed superannuation' column is prepared on a cash basis using contributed superannuation as defined as follows:

  • For individuals that are in a defined contribution scheme (e.g. PSSap), 'contributed superannuation' should include the defined contribution amounts. The amount is typically located on the individual's payslips; or
  • For individuals that are in a defined benefit scheme (e.g. PSS and CSS), 'contributed superannuation' should include the Notional Employer Contribution Rate (NECR) amount, Employer Productivity Superannuation Contribution (also known as the Productivity Component) and any Additional Lump Sum Contribution paid during the financial reporting period

Executive remuneration for 2017-18 was published on 25 July 2018 and was updated to include fringe benefits on 16 November 2018.
