Changes to the Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment levy returns - which will affect all wool levy payers - will come into effect on July 1.

All agents or levy payers must submit levy payer information online. This is in line with other levy paying agricultural bodies, moving to a more time and cost-efficient method of lodgement.

Wool levy agents will no longer have to send a csv/excel file to the department, but can now simply upload onto an online portal on behalf of their wool selling clients. This portal will be accessible for the individual levy payer and is a single site whereby all agricultural levies paid by their entity will show.

Levy payer information consists of the following:

  • The name, address, contact details and ABN (if any) of each person who has paid, or is liable to pay, a levy or charge for the affected collection product (the levy payer);
  • The total amount (in kilograms) of the wool sold, bought, exported, used or processed; and
  • The sale or free-on-board value of the wool, and the amount of levy or charge each levy payer has paid or is liable to pay for the period to which the return relates to.
