My Activity

Q: I am from a not-for-profit industry peak body.

I am looking for legislation/etc (if such exists) which prevents Commonwealth and State Governments from discriminating between private sector and not-for-profit entities from receiving government funding for doing exactly the same thing or achieving the same outcome.

Can anybody help?

Thanking you in anticipation.

A: Xavier it's an interesting question and quite a can of worms.

Governmental funding (state and federal) is often driven by each relevant department or overseeing body and Minister (some funding responsibilities can be delegated to other quasi governmental bodies).

The discrimination you refer to might arise out of funding criteria and rules which are applied by funding bodies but more specific advice as to any discrimination prohibitions would need to considered in some detail by a lawyer- not such a straightforward one to answer!

Q: Can an employer deduct superannuation payments from commissions?
A: Hi Michelle

I agree with Anthony. The employer must deduct super from commission payments unless you fit into a exemption such as working overseas.

Some more info is here. https://www.ato.gov.au/Business/Super-for-employers/Working-out-if-you-have-to-pay-super/

Q: My sister wants to buy a car. Is she better off financing that through her mortgage than getting finance for the car separately?
