The Sydney Catchment Authority (SCA) is required under section 34 of the Sydney Water Catchment Management Act 1998 to prepare a Statement of Financial Framework, which is to include provisions for or in respect of, among other things, payment of tax-equivalents.

Taxation liability is assessed by the SCA according to the National Tax Equivalent Regime (NTER) of the NSW Treasury, which proposes as far as practicable the adoption of the Commonwealth Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 (as amended) as the basis for determining taxation liability.

2. Review the assumptions underlying the calculation of the amounts claimed in the Application; and
3. Review the descriptions of project activities in the Application for compliance with requirements.
The SCA will be responsible for preparing the Application, including the calculations to support the amounts included, and lodging the Application with the NTER Administrator. The Application will be prepared in accordance with the following timetable:

Task Description & Due Date
1. Familiarisation with the SCAs research activities and personnel - May
