District Allowance update.

on Friday, 26 June 2015. Posted in News, District Allowances

The 2013 Regional Price Survey saw a drop in the Regional Price Index (RPI) of a number of regional locations. RPI is the measure used as the cost of living component used in the calculation of District Allowances and, consequently, the allowance rates in these locations also decreased; most significantly in Karratha/Dampier, the Pilbara and the Kimberley. The final phase of the 2013 2-year adjustment will come into effect this month (July). Get the details here.

District Allowance adjustments

on Monday, 24 March 2014. Posted in News, District Allowances

The 2013 Regional Price Index (RPI) survey, which is used to adjust the rates, has revealed changes to the cost of living across the state. The information we’ve received from Commerce indicates that Broome, Carnarvon, Geraldton, Esperance, Jerramungup and areas of the Great Southern outside the District Allowance exclusion zone will consequently receive some increase in their District Allowances. Other areas will experience reductions, some of which will be significant.
