    Notes:

    1. Holders of Public Office are included in the data. Executives for the Tax Practitioners Board and Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission are also included in the ATO’s report. Executives who have ceased employment with the ATO during the reporting period are included in the data and all or part of their separation payments, such as accrued long service and annual leave credits, are reflected in the figures.
    2. Under the Privacy Act 1988 an individual’s remuneration information is personal information. For the purposes of disclosure, where an individual could reasonably be identified (for example, where there is only one or a small number of people in a salary range) information can only be published with the consent of that individual.
