HIGHER EDUCATION FUNDING ACT 1988

 

Factor to Index an Accumulated HEC Debt

 

I, ERIN KATHLEEN HOLLAND, as delegate of the Commissioner of Taxation, HEREBY NOTIFY, pursuant to subsection 106N(9) of the Higher Education Funding Act 1988, that 1.024 is the factor to be used for the indexing of accumulated HEC debts on 1 June 2004.

 

In accordance with subsection 106N(5) of the Higher Education Funding Act 1988, the indexation factor is the number worked out to three decimal places using the formula:

 

the sum of the index number for the March 2004 quarter and the index numbers for the 3 immediately preceding quarters

divided by

the sum of the index number for the March 2003 quarter and the index numbers for the 3 immediately preceding quarters,

 

where index number, in relation to a quarter, means the All Groups Consumer Price Index number, being the weighted average of the 8 capital cities, published by the Australian Statistician in respect of that quarter.

 

Indexation factor for 1 June 2004          =          Mar04+Dec03+Sep03+Jun03.

                                                                        Mar03+Dec02+Sep02+Jun02

 

=          144.1 + 142.8 + 142.1 + 141.3

141.3 + 139.5 + 138.5 + 137.6

 

=          570.3

556.9

 

=          1.024 (rounded to 3 decimal places)

 

The indexation factor is 1.024 and the effective percentage increase is 2.4%.
