Levies charged on registered product sales
Registrants are required to pay levies based on the dollar value of sales (disposals) on their registered products. A levy is payable on all sales for each product greater than $5000.
Each year, registrants are required to provide the APVMA with the dollar value of sales by completing a request for declaration of leviable values.
The APVMA commissions independent audits of these declarations, which check reported sales against company financial records to ensure they are accurate.
Levies are imposed under the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemical Products Levy Imposition (General) Act 1994, theAgricultural and Veterinary Chemical Products Levy Imposition (Excise) Act 1994, and the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemical Products Levy Imposition (Customs) Act 1994.
Levies are collected under the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemical Products (Collection of Levies) Act 1994. Levy rates are prescribed in the Act’s Regulations.
