                In this Determination:

ACMA means the Australian Communications and Media Authority established by section 6 of the Australian Communications and Media Authority Act 2005.

                The amount of carrier licence charge imposed on a carrier licence in force at the beginning of the financial year that began on 1 July 2010, in relation to a carrier mentioned in an item in Schedule 1, is ascertained using the formula:

where:

MFC (minimum fixed charge) is $281.

OTC (other telecommunications charge) is $169 389.

Note   This is the amount of the ACMA’s costs for the 2009–2010 financial year that:

(a)   is attributable to the ACMA’s telecommunications functions and powers; and

(b)   has been recovered from telecommunications charges other than annual carrier licence charges.

The amount of the ACMA’s costs for the 2009–2010 financial year that is attributable to the ACMA’s telecommunications functions and powers is $22 008 004 — see section 4 of the Telecommunications (Specification of Costs by ACMA) Determination 2011.

TNC (total number of carriers) is 177.

Note   This is the total number of carriers mentioned in Schedule 1.

ER (eligible revenue), for the carrier, is the amount mentioned in the item in Schedule 1.

TER (total eligible revenue) is $28 602 308 750.
