Why place official notices in The Gazette?

The Gazette provides a permanent, official public record of important statutory and non-statutory notices that can be used to support legal and other processes, and act as a means of advertising public notices.

There are various reasons as to why notices are placed in The Gazette, depending on the notice itself. Placing a deceased estates notice in The Gazette, for example, ensures that sufficient effort has been made to locate creditors before distributing an estate to beneficiaries. This protects the executor (or trustee) from being liable for claims from unidentified creditors.

Many other notices are required to be placed in The Gazette by law, as they provide the public with accessible and verifiable official records.
