Withdrawal of the notice for the establishment of the grains levy payer register

Research and development corporation:

Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)

Date of notice:

19 December 2018

Effective date for levy returns:

28 January 2019

Affected collection products:

Coarse grains, grain legumes, oilseeds, wheat

Notice

The notice published on 7 November 2018 has been withdrawn because the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is not yet keeping a register of levy payers for the relevant collection products (coarse grains, grain legumes, oilseeds and wheat).

Because the notice has been withdrawn, the requirement for levy returns for the relevant collection products in subregulation 10(4A) of the Primary Industries Levies and Charges Collection Regulations 1991 (Collection Regulations) no longer applies. Under this subregulation, levy returns must include the information mentioned in subregulation 10(4B).

The withdrawal of the notice means that Department of Agriculture and Water Resources will not be collecting the levy payer information mentioned in subregulation 10(4B) of the Collection Regulations, in returns for the relevant collection products due by 28 January 2019 (for grain traded between 1 October 2018 and 31 December 2018) and after that date.

Levy payer registers form part of the department’s broader vision to modernise the levies system. The department will continue to support GRDC in its commitment to delivering the infrastructure that will support the efficient collection of levy payer information for levy payer registers.
