The aggregate amount of total remuneration of executives is shown above. 42,446,104 39,018,498

The aggregate amount of separation and redundancy/termination benefit payments during the year to executives shown above.

Remuneration for executives of Defence (being members of the Senior Executive Service or Military equivalent) is disclosed where the amount received or due and receivable for the financial year is $100,000 or more.

Remuneration includes salaries, superannuation, redundancy payments, accrued leave, car parking, motor vehicle expenses, and other benefits. In addition, for the ADF it includes the value of health and housing assistance. However, it does not include:

  • executives who were employed overseas for a period exceeding six months; and
  • amounts in payment or reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the executives

A recent sampling review of military leave entitlement by Defence identified errors in relation to military leave balances (Note 9A refers). As a consequence of this review, it is possible that some of the leave entitlements used in the compilation of remuneration for military personnel in the above note maybe in error. The impact of any potential error could result in movement between the salary bands.
