Under Section 374 of the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006 (the Act), the governing body of a non-state school must, on or before 30 June each year, give the Queensland Minister for Education allowance acquittal details, for the school, relating to the previous year of operation of the school. The allowance acquittal confirms that the school has expended, or committed to expend, all funding received from the State Government for the relevant purposes.
The governing body of a non-state school must provide allowance acquittal details for any allowance paid to the school under Section 368(1)(b) of the Act. The State Recurrent Grant, Textbook and Resource Allowance, Remote Area Tuition Allowance, Grammar Schools Endowment are examples of allowances that require the provision of allowance acquittal details.
Allowance acquittal details must be provided by the governing body of the school, or an authorised nominee of the school's governing body, in the approved form and must be approved by an accountant.
The Office of Non-State Education (ONSE) is responsible for the collection of allowance acquittal details for non-state schools.
Prior to 30 June, ONSE emails acquittal forms, pre-populated with the funding amounts provided in the previous calendar year, to each school or school system. Instructions about the completion and return of the acquittal are included in the form.
For information of non-state schools and their governing bodies, please see the template form used in the acquittal process 369K. Please do not complete this acquittal form, but instead complete the form sent from ONSE.
If you have any queries about the collection, please email the Office of Non-State Education or phone (07) 3513 6746.
