6              Method of ascertaining carrier licence charge – other carrier licences

(1)      This section applies to a carrier licence that is not an exempt carrier licence.

(MCA - OTC) ×

ER

TER

where:

MCA (maximum charge amount) is $43 271 137.

OTC (other telecommunications costs) is $4 385 754.

Note:      This amount relates to costs that:

(a)        are part of the proportion of the ACMA’s costs for the 2011–2012 financial year that is attributable to the ACMA’s telecommunications functions and powers; and

(b)        have been recovered from telecommunications charges (other than annual carrier licence charges) or the ACMA considers are not appropriate to recover from carriers because of the nature of the activities with which the costs are associated.

(The amount determined to be the proportion of the ACMA’s costs for the 2011–2012 financial year that is attributable to the ACMA’s telecommunications functions and powers is $21 225 696 — see section 4 of the Telecommunications (Specification of the Costs by the ACMA) Determination 2013.)

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

Note:      This amount is the carrier’s eligible revenue for the 2011–2012 financial year as assessed by the ACMA under subsection 20F (1) of the Telecommunications (Consumer Protection and Service Standards) Act 1999.

TER (total eligible revenue) is $28 579 781 547.
