Gifts, benefits and hospitality

The Gifts, Benefits or Hospitality Policy outlines strict guidelines and reporting processes for elected members and employees accepting or declining a gift, benefit or hospitality.

The rules are summarised as follows:

  • A gift valued below $50 may be accepted and need not be disclosed (providing the gift is not one of 2 or more gifts given by the same person within a 6-month period whereby the total value exceeds $50)
  • A gift valued between $50 and $300, or a gift that is one of 2 or more gifts given by the same person within a period of 6 months that are in total, valued between $50 and $300 may be accepted; however, must be recorded on the City's Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality Register
  • A gift valued $300 or more, or a gift that is one of 2 or more gifts given by the same person within a period of 6 months whereby the total value exceeds $300, must not be accepted
  • Gifts from statutory authorities, government instrumentalities, non-profit associations for professional training, the Western Australian local government association, Australian local government association and local government managers Australia WA Division are exempt from the above requirements. However, should an elected member or an employee who has delegated authority receive a gift (or one of 2 or more gifts) from one of these organisations within a 12-month period where the total value exceeds $200, the gift must be disclosed.

The Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality Register is published in the interest of accountability and transparency.
