11.8 Northern Territory income management - interim arrangements

Note: The information below describes the regulations that applied to people on NTER income management after 1 July 2010. NTER INCOME MANAGEMENT CEASED completely on 30 June 2011. The following INFORMATION is FOR HISTORICAL PURPOSES ONLY.

No people can be newly subject to NTER income management from 1 July 2010

A person who was not on the old NTER income management measure on 30 June 2010 cannot become subject to (i.e. be placed on) the old NTER income management measure after 1 July 2010. This would include a person who had an exemption from the old NTER income management measure that was in force on 30 June 2010.

Exemptions or exits from NTER income management from 1 July 2010

If a person who is subject to income management under the old NTER income management measure applies for an exemption on or after 1 July 2010, and this is the first time that the person has requested an exemption, a delegate does not have the power to grant the person an exemption. It will not be possible to determine whether they can exit from the old NTER income management measure until the area in which they live is declared under the new income management provisions.
