Published on 01 Aug 10 by "TAXATION IN AUSTRALIA" JOURNAL ARTICLE

The new Minerals Resources Rent Tax will affect those mining companies extracting iron ore and coal from the land. Although the tax will not commence until 1 July 2012, current mining projects will also be affected and brought within the regime. This article examines the effect of this tax
