EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

 

Income Tax Assessment Act 1997

Acts Interpretation Act 1901

 

Film Certification Advisory Board Rules 2008 (Amendment No. 1 of 2011)

 

(Issued by authority of the Minister for the Arts)

 

The Film Certification Advisory Board Rules 2008 (the Rules) were made by the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and the Arts pursuant to subsection 376‑260(1) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (the Act) on 5 February 2008.

 

The purpose of the instrument is to amend the Rules to reflect the changed administration arrangements ordered by the Governor-General under which the Commonwealth department responsible for the administration of the scheme changed.

 

The Film Certification Advisory Board (the Board) functions include the assessment of applications under the Location Offset and Post, Digital and Visual Effects (PDV) Offset and the provision of advice to the Arts Minister on the offsets.

 

The Board consists of a Chair and two other members.  The Chair is an SES employee nominated by the Arts Secretary and the two other members are appointed by the Arts Minister.

 

The amendments contained in the instrument are necessary to reflect the changed administration arrangements ordered by the Governor-General.  In addition, the definition of ‘Department’ in the Rules is unnecessary as the Act already defines ‘Arts Department’ in section 995-1 and therefore will be deleted by this instrument.  Consequently the two references in the Rules to ‘Department’ have been substituted with ‘Arts Department’.

 

Consultation was considered unnecessary as the amendments are minor.

 

This instrument is a legislative instrument for the purposes of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003.

 

The instrument commences on the day after it was registered on the Federal Register of Legislative Instruments.
