2005/2006 Financial disclosure returns available

Published 1 Feb 2007

Financial disclosure returns for ACT political parties, Members of the ACT Legislative Assembly, associated entities and donors to political parties for the 2005/2006 financial year were released today by the ACT Electoral Commissioner, Phillip Green.

"The returns show details fo receipts, gifts, payments and debts related to political participants in the ACT for the last financial year." Mr Green said.

“Publication of the 2005/2006 annual returns marks the first occasion that the ACT disclosure scheme has differed significantly from the Commonwealth disclosure scheme,” Mr Green said. “In 2005/2006, the Commonwealth increased its disclosure threshold to over $10,000. The ACT retained its $1,500 threshold for the 2005/2006 returns,” Mr Green said.

These returns can be inspected at the ACT Electoral Commission's Internet site at www.elections.act.gov.au or in person at the office of the Electoral Commission at Level 2, 12 Moore Street, Canberra City between 9:00am and 5:00pm on weekdays.
