What we do

Territory Revenue Office (TRO) is a Division of the Department of Treasury and Finance. Our role is to administer and provide advice on the Territory’s main own-source revenues and certain grant and subsidy schemes.

There are approximately 40 employees working in the three areas of TRO:

Revenue Collections

This area collects the revenue derived from the various stamp duties, payroll tax and mineral and petroleum royalties as set out in the Territory’s tax and royalty laws; provides advice on how these laws apply; and administers home incentive schemes,  including the First Home Owner Grant.

Royalty and Assurance

Royalties and Assurance (RA) is responsible for developing and implementing the TRO’s active compliance program through a process of data matching, risk assessment, audit and client education. The unit also monitors and investigates the activities of mining companies to assist in compliance with the Government's mineral and petroleum royalty legislative requirements and policies and develops and issues mineral royalty guidelines to support compliance.

Legislation, Advisory and Review

Legislation, Advisory and Review (LAR) is responsible for ensuring the Territory’s taxation, royalty and home incentive schemes are fair, efficient, simple to administer and keep pace with changing commercial practices. The unit analyses other Australian tax systems, consults with industry and professional bodies, delivers client education and provides advice to other units in TRO on complex revenue matters. The unit develops revenue policy initiatives and advises the Government on commercial and legislative issues that affect the Territory’s revenue regime. It also analyses and forecasts revenue receipts and reviews objections to tax and royalty decisions and assessments.

Service Charter

Territory Revenue Office has a taxpayer’s service charter (56.5 kb). The document outlines the service levels Territory Revenue Office will provide, as well as client obligations.
