Scale of Fees for Factory Licences.

Regulation 14 of the Sugar Regulations made on the 6th October, 1903, is hereby repealed, and the following Regulation substituted in lieu thereof:—

14.   The scale of fees payable by manufacturers for licences in respect of factories shall be as follows, computing as from the first day of January:—

(1) For every juice mill used for the extraction of juice and not erected at a factory where sugar is manufactured—

(a) For the first 1,000 tons of cane, or part thereof, crushed or ground during the year—£1 per annum.

(b) For every additional 2,000 tons of cane, or part thereof, crushed or ground during the year—£1 per annum.

(c) But not to exceed—£5 per annum.

(2) For every factory wherein sugar is manufactured, but wherein sugar is not received to be refined—

For the first 500 tons of sugar, or part thereof, manufactured during the year—£3 per annum.

For every additional 100 tons of sugar, or part thereof, manufactured during the year—£1 per annum.


 

The licence-fees under (1) and (2) are in the first instance to be paid on the estimated quantity of cane to be crushed in the mill, or of sugar to be manufactured in the factory during the year; but if more cane is crushed or more sugar is manufactured than the quantity estimated, the manufacturer shall pay to the Collector the additional amount.

(3) For every factory wherein sugar is received to be refined—£200 per annum.

If a warehouse is licensed under the Customs Act, and an officer is permanently stationed in charge, and can supervise refining operations, the warehouse may be licensed also as a factory wherein sugar may be received to be refined. The annual licence-fee shall be—

(a) Where the licence-fee paid under the Customs Act is £200 or over—£5.

(b) Where the licence-fee paid under the Customs Act is less than £200—Such sum as together with the licence-fee under the Customs Act will amount to £205.

When, by reason of the time of the granting of a licence for a factory wherein sugar is received to be refined, it will not continue for a full year, the amount shall be proportionally reduced.
