Overview

The department has redesigned its cost recovery arrangements with new fees and levies coming into effect on 1 December 2015. This fact sheet has been developed to provide you with an overview of the key changes to charges relating to non-prescribed goods. This document should be read in conjunction with the department’s Charging Guidelines and the Food Export Cost Recovery Implementation Statement (CRIS).

Key changes

There will be temporary remissions which will reduce the price for some non-prescribed goods export charges. The remissions will draw down previously accumulated reserves for the four years from 2015–16 to 2018–19. All are subject to ongoing monitoring to assess ongoing affordability and may be adjusted, in consultation with industry, if trade volumes and costs change unexpectedly.

Export certificates

General export certificates will be remitted down from $55 to $36. Export certificates issued under an approved arrangement will be reduced from $112 to $73. The fees for manual certificates will also be remitted down. The details of the certificate charges for non-prescribed goods are set out at Table 1.

Overtime

Overtime changes have been standardised for activities undertaken outside of the department’s standard span of hours, which are weekdays between 6:30am and 6:30pm, where the activity is delivered. All activities undertaken outside of the department’s standard span of hours will incur the relevant fee for service charge in addition to overtime charges (see table 2).
