Review of Northern Territory concessions

On the 2 May 2017, the Northern Territory Treasurer announced $33 million dollars for a new Northern Territory Concessions Scheme.

What is happening?

  • The current scheme is complex, unfair and open to fraud.
  • A discussion paper was released on July 10 for wide community consultation about how to improve the scheme.
  • The objective is to make the new scheme fairer and more accessible.
  • No date has yet been set for the introduction of a new scheme.
  • No decisions have been made about amounts for concessions or how they will be delivered.
