Changes to the Deer velvet levy and Deer export charge

​Starting 1 July 2016, the overall rate for the deer velvet and deer export levy will be set to zero. The current deer velvet and deer export levy is not viable due to the small amount of funds collected on the sale and export of deer velvet and export of live deer where a large portion goes to paying administration costs of the levy.
