Remuneration Tribunal

The tribunal is an independent statutory body that undertakes inquiries into the remuneration and entitlements of key Northern Territory office holders.

The tribunal’s reports and determinations are tabled in the Northern Territory Legislative Assembly.

It is responsible for:

  • conducting annual reviews of the entitlements of Northern Territory Magistrates and making determinations or recommendations about those entitlements
  • conducting annual reviews of the entitlements (apart from basic salary) of Members of the Legislative Assembly, including office holders such as the Speaker of the Assembly, Ministers and the Leader of the Opposition, and making determinations or recommendations about those entitlements (under a Standing Order issued by the Administrator of the Northern Territory)
  • conducting reviews and making recommendations about the entitlements of members of Northern Territory Government statutory bodies and statutory officers, including Judges, as requested by the Administrator from time to time.

The tribunal does not have a role in setting the basic salary or Additional Salary of Office of members of the Legislative Assembly, which is set by legislation.

The Tribunal does not have a role in setting salaries for NT Supreme Court Judges, as these are linked to Federal Court Judge salaries.
