Queensland Treasury (Treasury) is committed to the values of the Queensland Public Service and to recruiting and retaining the best people for the job. We hope the information in this guide helps you better understand the recruitment and selection process and with the preparation of your application.

Treasury is at the heart of the Queensland Government, providing world-class economic advice and financial services. We are responsible for driving better financial and economic outcomes for Queensland, so Queenslanders can prosper now and into the future. Working in a central agency, our people develop solutions that have lasting impact on prosperity for Queenslanders.

The Financial Accountability Handbook (the Handbook) has been designed to assist accountable officers and statutory bodies discharge their obligations under the Financial Accountability Act 2009 (the Act), the Financial and Performance Management Standard 2019 (the Standard), and the Financial Accountability Regulation 2019 (the Regulation).

Gifts or benefits accepted by a public service employee remain the property of the agency unless the accountable officer for the agency determines it is appropriate for the recipient to retain the gift or benefit. Employees must declare given or received gifts and benefits and the agency must ensure that reportable gifts or benefits have been declared and published online within reportable timeframes.

The Under Treasurer’s Register shows gifts and benefits valued at more than $150 that have been given and received by Queensland Treasury and agency employees in a financial year. Items of cultural significance have been reported regardless of their value. The register is updated each quarter.

A public ruling, when issued, is the published view of the Commissioner of State Revenue (the Commissioner) on the particular topic to which it relates. It therefore replaces and overrides any existing private rulings, memoranda, manuals and advice provided by the Commissioner in respect of the issue(s) it addresses.

Where a change in legislation or case law (the law) affects the content of a public ruling, the change in the law overrides the public ruling—that is, the Commissioner will determine the tax liability or eligibility for a concession, grant or exemption, as the case may be, in accordance with the law.

The 2019-20 Mid-Year Fiscal and Economic Review provides an update on Queensland’s economic and fiscal position since the 2019-20 Budget, highlighting the Queensland Government’s ongoing commitment to back more jobs in more industries, build essential infrastructure and deliver high-quality frontline services.
