Demonstrated ability to understand, interpret and apply standards, legislation, policy and guidelines in providing services to customers/stakeholders.

I prepare financial statements in compliance with the Australian Accounting Standards Board (AASB) and Australian Equivalents to International Financial Reporting Standards (AEIFRS). I regularly refer to the AASB 101; 116; 116 and 139. My auditing experience at NSW DEF solidified my knowledge of legislation (Public Finance Act 1983), accounting standards, and government risk management frameworks. Having worked for government departments in senior level roles, I applied strong understanding of government accounting, budgetary and taxation practices; in the context of relevant legislation such as the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936/1997, Capital Gains Tax (CGT) Act, Goods and Services Tax (GST) Act.

At XYZ, I identified an issue with clauses in the leasing contracts leading to different interpretations. This was due to the complexity of the contracts and nature of the business. One of the clauses requiring clarification related to differing interpretations of the Wages index. XYZ used the ‘Original’ index to date; the lessors had a different interpretation. To resolve, I consulted the Executive team, contractors, and the NSW Department of CCC; and convinced them to use the ‘Seasonally Adjusted’ index. This was achieved by explaining how the index smoothed out the seasonal variations in the wages which would give a more accurate price variations review. My clarification of this contract clause was incorporated into the Deed of Variation.
