Some low-income veterinary chemical product manufacturers may be eligible for reduced fees.
Licensed manufacturers producing products with a notional wholesale value of less than $50,000 in the previous financial year are eligible to apply for a 50% reduction in fees. They must provide the APVMA with a Commonwealth Statutory Declaration to support the application.
Notional wholesale value, in relation to a chemical product, means the amount that the collecting agency determines would have been received:
- if the product is an Australian product—by the manufacturer
- if the product is an imported product—by the importer.
- if the product had been sold by the manufacturer or importer wholesale to a person with whom the manufacturer or importer was dealing at arm’s length.
|Manufacturer category||Reduced fee|
|Category 1 and multi-category||$3,750|
