2020-21 budget impact on export Cost Recovery Implementation Statement

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Australian Government policy is to recover the full cost of delivering of export regulatory services. Under the Cost Recovery Guidelines, we must regularly document changes to regulatory charging activities through a Cost Recovery Implementation Statement (CRIS).

You can now read the 2020-21 CRIS for each export cost recovery arrangement.

Budget impacts

Each 2020-21 CRIS describes the impact of the 2020–21 Federal Budget package Busting Congestion for Agricultural Exporters on exports cost recovery. They explain the freezing of fees and charges to maintain cost recovery at current levels in 2020-21.

The government has committed $71.1 million to improve the financial sustainability of export certification services by returning to full cost recovery of these services over time. A stepped return to full recovery will enable reforms to be rolled out while maintaining existing systems.

Each 2020-21 CRIS also provides a starting point from which the cost base can be reviewed and adjusted going forward. This takes into consideration the reform implementation across export regulatory services.

Fees and charges shown in forward years of each CRIS are for illustrative purposes only. They show the impact of the package if applied to current pricing structures.

Provide your feedback

We will engage with stakeholders around March to April 2021 on the proposed 2021-22 CRIS for each arrangement. This will include proposed price changes for 2021‑22 and the next 3 years. It will also include new prices and restructured price points.
