Issue: Issue 28 2010

Pages: pp. 1-4


In a significant turnaround, the government has announced new resource rent tax arrangements. Instead of a Resource Super Profits Tax (RSPT), the new mining tax regime will consist of:

- a new Minerals Resource Rent Tax (MRRT) which will apply to iron ore and coal

- the existing Petroleum Resource Rent Tax (PRRT) which will apply to all oil, gas and coal seam methane projects, onshore and offshore.
