Current and Former Parliamentarians’ Expenditure Reports
1 July to 31 December 2016

The current and former parliamentarians’ six-monthly expenditure reports have today been published on the Department of Finance website External link.

This is the final time these reports will be published by the Department of Finance. In the future, all expenditure reports will be released by the Independent Parliamentary Expenses Authority (IPEA).

In order to increase transparency, reporting will move from six-monthly to quarterly and in the future, monthly.

These changes are part of the Turnbull Government’s significant and ongoing program of reform to parliamentarians’ work expenses.

In the past six months, Special Minister of State Senator the Hon Scott Ryan has:

“Australians are entitled to expect parliamentarians spend taxpayers’ money wisely, appropriately and accountably,” Senator Ryan said.

“The Turnbull Government is undertaking the most comprehensive reforms to federal parliamentarians’ work expenses in a generation.”
