Omit “1998 is $1,100”, substitute “2002 is $1,800”.

2  Application—section 7 of the Migration Agents Registration Application Charge Act 1997

Despite the amendment of section 7 of the Migration Agents Registration Application Charge Act 1997 made by this Schedule, that section continues to apply, in relation to registration applications made in:

                     (a)  the financial year that began on 1 July 2000; or

                     (b)  an earlier financial year;

as if that amendment had not been made.

3  Transitional—section 7 of the Migration Agents Registration Application Charge Act 1997

To avoid doubt, the amount of charge payable for the making of a registration application during the period:

                     (a)  beginning on 1 July 2001; and

                     (b)  ending immediately before the commencement of this item;

must not exceed the amount that would have been the charge limit for the financial year that began on 1 July 2001 if the amendment of section 7 of the Migration Agents Registration Application Charge Act 1997 made by this Schedule had not been made.
