148X Working out monthly payments for return period that is calendar quarter generally

(1)This section provides, for section 148V(1), the amounts payable by a petroleum producer for the first and second months of a royalty return period (the current royalty return period).

Note—

See, however, section 148Z.
(2)The amount payable by the petroleum producer for each of the first and second months of the current royalty return period is a third of the total amount of the petroleum royalty payable by the petroleum producer under the Act for the previous royalty return period—
(a)taking into account any assessment under the Taxation Administration Act 2001, for the petroleum royalty payable for the previous royalty return period, made before the earlier of the following events happens—
(i)the amount for the first month of the current royalty return period is paid;
(ii)the amount for the first month of the current royalty return period becomes payable; and
(b)disregarding any assessment under the Taxation Administration Act 2001, for the petroleum royalty payable for the previous royalty return period, made when, or after, the earlier of the events mentioned in paragraph (a)(i) and (ii) happens.

Example—

The petroleum royalty paid for the previous royalty return period was $90,000. A reassessment for the previous royalty return period was made by the revenue commissioner under the Taxation Administration Act 2001 to increase the petroleum royalty payable for the previous royalty return period to $120,000. The reassessment was made before the amount payable for the first month of the royalty return period is paid or becomes payable (whichever is the earlier). Accordingly, the amount payable under this section for the first month and second month of the royalty return period is $40,000 (being a third of $120,000).

(ii)for petroleum produced or that will be produced other than under a petroleum tenure or 1923 Act petroleum tenure—an amount of petroleum to be produced on or after the commencement; and
(c)on the commencement, the application had not been decided.

(3)However, the petroleum producer for the petroleum can not apply for a review, under section 148J(1)(a), of the decision.

Example of the operation of subsections (2) and (3)—

A petroleum royalty decision is made under previous chapter 6, part 2, division 4 that states a method of working out a component of the wellhead value of both relevant petroleum, and petroleum produced or disposed of before the commencement.
To the extent the decision relates to relevant petroleum, the decision may be applied after its expiry under section 148F, and may be amended under section 148H or 148K. The producer must comply with its obligations to notify the Minister under section 148G, and may also seek a review of a decision to amend the petroleum royalty decision under section 148J(1)(b), in relation to the relevant petroleum.
However, if the decision is amended in relation to petroleum produced or disposed of before the commencement, the previous provisions of this regulation apply in relation to the amendment of the decision. This means, for example, the producer can not seek a review of the decision to amend the petroleum royalty decision for the petroleum produced before the commencement under section 148J(1)(a).
(4)The Minister must, within 60 days after the commencement, give the petroleum producer for the relevant petroleum a notice complying with subsection (5).
