About QRO

Queensland Revenue Office (QRO) is responsible for collecting state taxes and royalties, administering home owner grants, and collecting and enforcing unpaid fines and penalties. In 2021, the former Office of State Revenue (OSR) merged with the State Penalties Enforcement Registry (SPER) to become the QRO of today.

The revenue we collect provides $26 billion in income for Queensland. We put this money back into roads, schools, hospitals and health services, as well as art galleries and community events. This helps to grow our economy and improve the wellbeing of all Queenslanders.

Simon McKee is the current Acting Commissioner of State Revenue and Acting Registrar of the State Penalties Enforcement Registry.

We’ve changed

In Queensland, we’ve been the Office of State Revenue since 1991, when the Stamp Duties and Land Tax offices combined. Since then we’ve grown and taken on more responsibilities to collect revenue, manage state taxes and administer grants—all to help grow the Queensland economy.

In 2021 we became Queensland Revenue Office (QRO) when OSR and SPER merged. Our new name better reflects who we are and what we do in collecting revenue to allow the government to provide essential services for Queenslanders.

Also, we have an increasing number of clients who operate across multiple states and territories and they tell us it is difficult to distinguish between different revenue offices. The new name identifies us as the revenue authority for Queensland.

What this means for you

You don’t need to do anything, except be assured that we will continue to uphold our client charter and look after the Queensland economy.

If you have any documents with OSR branding that you have saved offline, you can always get current versions from Queensland Government Publications. If you have any queries, send us an email using the online enquiry form.
