Annual and Primary Returns Register

Council members, Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) and employees are expected to make decisions in the best interests of their community.  To do this, they must consider each issue on its merits. 

Decision-making could be influenced — or perceived to be influenced — in a number of ways, including through financial relationships, personal relationships and the receipt of gifts.  The Local Government Act 1995 sets out requirements for council members, CEOs and other employees to ensure transparency and accountability in decision-making.

Council members and employees with delegated authority are therefore required to disclose personal financial information in two types of returns: primary and annual.

A primary return is a snapshot of personal financial information as it exists upon the relevant person’s start date and must be lodged within three months of the start date.

An annual return retrospectively discloses any changes to the information previously disclosed in the primary return or new interests accumulated for the period since completing the primary return or last annual return and must be lodged no later than 31 August in any year.

In accordance with the Local Government Act 1995 and the Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996 local governments are required to publish a list of elected members and employees (by position) that lodged a primary return and annual return for each financial year, commencing after 1 July 2020.
