         (2)   For subsection (1):

                (a)    a number that is submitted for checking is taken to be a telephone number even if it is not in fact a telephone number; and

               (b)    a number that is submitted for checking more than once is to be counted separately for each time that it is submitted.

5              Subscription types

         (1)   An access‑seeker may hold 1 or more subscription types subject to:

                (a)    payment of the annual subscription fee for each subscription held; and

               (b)    the access‑seeker being registered under subsection 4 (3) of the Do Not Call Register (Access to Register) Determination 2007.

Note   Access‑seekers may apply for a subscription when registering under subsection 4 (3) of the Do Not Call Register (Access to Register) Determination 2007.

         (2)   However:

                (a)    an access‑seeker may only hold 1 subscription type A at a time; and

               (b)    an access‑seeker who holds a subscription type A may not hold any other subscription type while that subscription type A is in force.

         (3)   If an access‑seeker holds 2 or more subscriptions, for which the subscription periods began on different days:

                (a)    any numbers submitted for checking are taken to have been submitted for the subscription which commenced first in time, up to the maximum number of telephone numbers able to be submitted for that subscription; and

               (b)    any remaining numbers submitted for checking are taken to have been submitted for the other subscription or subscriptions, in order of commencement, up to the maximum number of telephone numbers able to be submitted for that subscription, or each of those subscriptions.

6              Annual subscription fee

         (1)   The annual subscription fee mentioned in column 3 of the table in section 4 is payable for each subscription for which the access‑seeker applies.

Example 1   An access‑seeker that selects subscription types C and D would be required to pay ACMA $320 for subscription type C and $2 800 for subscription type D.

Example 2   An access‑seeker that selects 2 type C subscriptions would be required to pay ACMA $320 for each subscription or $640 for both subscriptions.

Note 1   The annual subscription fee is exempt from GST under subsection 81‑5 (2) of the A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999.

Note 2   Subsection 21 (6) of the Act provides that a fee is payable to ACMA on behalf of the Commonwealth.

         (2)   An annual subscription period for an access‑seeker commences on the day that the access‑seeker agrees to pay the annual subscription fee for a subscription of the relevant type, and ends 12 months after that day unless cancelled by ACMA under subsection (3).

         (3)   If an access‑seeker who holds a subscription type A applies for another subscription type, ACMA must cancel the subscription type A.

         (4)   ACMA must refund to an access‑seeker an amount that the access‑seeker did not have to pay under this Determination.

7              Excess usage fee

         (1)   Subject to subsections (2) and (3), an access‑seeker is required to pay to ACMA an excess usage fee, equal to the amount mentioned in column 4 of the table in section 4 multiplied by the number of telephone numbers submitted, during a subscription period, in excess of:

                (a)    the maximum number of telephone numbers able to be submitted for the subscription type held; or

               (b)    if the access‑seeker holds 2 or more subscriptions, the total of the maximum numbers for those subscriptions.

Example   An access‑seeker had purchased a subscription type D and no other subscription but has submitted 1 100 000 telephone numbers for checking within the subscription period. The access‑seeker is required to pay ACMA an excess usage fee of $400, calculated by multiplying the number of telephone numbers in excess of the maximum number permitted for the subscription type (ie 100 000) by the excess usage fee for the subscription type (ie $0.004).

         (2)   If an amount worked out under subsection (1) is:

                (a)    a number of whole dollars and a part of a cent; or

               (b)    a number of whole dollars and cents and part of a cent;

the amount is to be reduced to the nearest lower whole number of cents.

         (3)   The fee mentioned in subsection (1) is payable by the access‑seeker on the issue to the access‑seeker of an invoice for that amount.

Note   The excess usage fee is exempt from GST under subsection 81‑5 (2) of the A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999.
