Welcome to the Remuneration Tribunal of South Australia website.

The Remuneration Tribunal is established by the Remuneration Act 1990 ("the Act"). The Remuneration Tribunal is responsible for conducting independent reviews of remuneration and making independent determinations of remuneration for the office holders subject to its jurisdiction and powers.

Those office holders include, but are not limited to:

  • Members of the Parliament;
  • Members of the Judiciary;
  • Presidential Members of the South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal;
  • Presidential Members of the South Australian Employment Tribunal;
  • Certain Statutory Office Holders;
  • His Excellency the Governor of South Australia; and
  • Elected Members of Local Government Councils.

The Tribunal conducts reviews of its Determinations on an annual basis, or according to the time period specified in any applicable legislation.

Section 18 of the Act provides that a Determination of the Remuneration Tribunal is not subject to appeal.

Section 11(1) of the Act provides that the Remuneration Tribunal has the powers of the Royal Commission and section 11(2) of the Act provides that the provisions of the Royal Commissions Act 1917 apply to and in relation to the Tribunal as if it were a Royal Commission.
