                             (ii)  future production of goods; or

                            (iii)  current and future production of goods; and

             (1)  For subsection 269TAC(5B) of the Act, this regulation sets out:

                     (a)  the manner in which the Minister must, for subparagraph 269TAC(2)(c)(ii) or (4)(e)(ii) of the Act, work out an amount (the amount) to be the profit on the sale of goods; and

                     (b)  factors that the Minister must take account of for that purpose.

             (2)  For subregulation (1), the Minister must, if reasonably possible, work out the amount by using data relating to the production and sale of like goods by the exporter or producer of the goods in the ordinary course of trade.

             (3)  If the Minister is unable to work out the amount by using the data mentioned in subregulation (2), the Minister must work out the amount:

                     (a)  by identifying the actual amounts realised by the exporter or producer from the sale of the same general category of goods in the domestic market of the country of export; or

                     (b)  by identifying the weighted average of the actual amounts realised by other exporters or producers from the sale of like goods in the domestic market of the country of export; or

                     (c)  subject to subregulation (4), by using any other reasonable method and having regard to all relevant information.

             (4)  If:

                     (a)  the Minister uses a method of calculation under paragraph (3)(c) to work out an amount representing the profit of the exporter or producer of the goods; and

                     (b)  the amount worked out exceeds the amount of profit normally realised by other exporters or producers on sales of goods of the same general category in the domestic market of the country of export;

the Minister must disregard the amount by which the amount worked out exceeds the amount of profit normally realised by other exporters or producers.

             (5)  For this regulation, the Minister may disregard any information that he or she considers to be unreliable.

             (6)  A word or expression that is defined in Part XVB of the Act and used in this regulation has the meaning given by that Part.

183  Matters to which the Minister must have regard (subsection 269TAC(5E) of the Act)

             (1)  In this regulation:

entity, in relation to goods, means each of:

                     (a)  the exporter of the exported goods mentioned in subsection 269TAC(5D) of the Act; and

                     (b)  if the exporter of the goods is not the producer of the goods, but the goods are produced in the country of export—the producer of the goods.

government, of a country, means any level of government of the country.

             (2)  For subsection 269TAC(5E) of the Act, the following matters are prescribed:

                     (a)  whether the entity makes decisions about prices, costs, inputs, sales and investments:

                              (i)  in response to market signals; and

                             (ii)  without significant interference by a government of the country of export;

                     (b)  whether the entity keeps accounting records in accordance with generally accepted accounting standards in the country of export;

                     (c)  whether the generally accepted accounting standards in the country of export are in line with international accounting standards developed by the International Accounting Standards Board;

Note:          International accounting standards developed by the International Accounting Standards Board can be found on the International Accounting Standards Board website at http://www.iasc.org.uk/cmt/0001.asp.

                     (d)  whether the accounting records mentioned in paragraph (b) are independently audited;

                     (e)  whether the entity’s production costs or financial situation are significantly affected by the influence that a government of the country of export had on the domestic price of goods in the country before the country’s economy was an economy in transition;

                      (f)  whether the country of export has laws relating to bankruptcy and property;

                     (g)  whether the entity is subject to the bankruptcy and property laws mentioned in paragraph (f);

                     (h)  whether the entity is part of a market or sector in which the presence of an enterprise owned by a government of the country of export prevents market conditions from prevailing in that market or sector;

                      (i)  whether utilities are supplied to the entity under contracts that reflect commercial terms and prices that are generally available throughout the economy of the country of export;

                      (j)  if the land on which the entity’s facilities are built is owned by a government of the country of export—whether the conditions of rent are comparable to those in a market economy;

                     (k)  whether the entity has the right to hire and dismiss employees and to fix the salaries of employees.

             (3)  In assessing whether there is significant interference for subparagraph (2)(a)(ii), the Minister must have regard to the following:

                     (a)  whether a genuinely private company or party holds the majority shareholding in the entity;

                     (b)  if officials of a government of the country of export hold positions on the board of the entity—whether these officials are a minority of the members of the board;

                     (c)  if officials of a government of the country of export hold significant management positions within the entity—whether these officials are a minority of the persons holding significant management positions;

                     (d)  whether the entity’s ability to carry on business activities in the country of export is affected by:

                              (i)  a restriction on selling in the domestic market; or

                             (ii)  the potential for the right to do business being withdrawn other than under contractual terms; or

                            (iii)  if the entity is a joint‑venture in which one of the parties is a foreign person, or is carried on in the form of such a joint‑venture—the ability of the foreign person to export profits and repatriate capital invested;

                     (e)  whether the entity’s significant production inputs (including raw materials, labour, energy and technology) are supplied:

                              (i)  by enterprises that are owned or controlled by a government of the country of export; and

                             (ii)  at prices that do not substantially reflect conditions found in a market economy.

184  Interpretation of regulation 185 and Schedule 2

             (1)  In regulation 185 TCO has the same meaning as it has in Part XVA of the Act.

             (3)  A reference in regulation 185 and Schedule 2 to a heading or a subheading is a reference to a heading or a subheading, as the case may be, in Schedule 3 to the Customs Tariff Act 1995 and includes a reference to any subheading listed under such a heading or subheading.

Schedule 1ABAInfringement notices

Note:       See regulation 179ABA.

Part 1Preliminary

  

1  Simplified outline of this Schedule

This Schedule creates a framework for the use of infringement notices where an infringement officer reasonably believes that a provision of the Act has been contravened.

A person can be given an infringement notice in relation to a contravention of a provision of the Act that is subject to an infringement notice under this Schedule.

A person who is given an infringement notice can choose to pay an amount as an alternative to having court proceedings brought against the person for a contravention of a provision subject to an infringement notice under this Schedule. If the person does not choose to pay the amount, proceedings can be brought against the person in relation to the contravention.

2  Definitions

                   In this Schedule:

payment period means:

                     (a)  for an infringement notice given to a person under this Schedule in a section 234AA place in relation to an alleged contravention of paragraph 233(1)(b) or (c) or subsection 234A(1) or 234AB(3) of the Act—the period that ends when the person leaves the place for the first time after the notice is given; or

                     (b)  for an infringement notice given to a person under this Schedule in relation to an alleged contravention of subsection 243T(1) of the Act—the period that ends 28 days after the day the notice is given to the person, unless subclause 7(8) applies; or

                     (c)  for any other infringement notice given to a person under this Schedule—the period that ends 28 days after the day the notice is given to the person.

Note:          See subsection 4(1) of the Act for the definition of section 234AA place.

3  Meaning of infringement officer

             (1)  A person is an infringement officer for the purposes of this Schedule if:

                     (a)  the person is an officer of Customs; and

                     (b)  the CEO authorises the person to exercise the powers or perform the functions of an infringement officer under this Schedule.

             (2)  A person who is an infringement officer for the purpose of exercising powers mentioned in subclause (1) is also an infringement officer for the purposes of:

                     (a)  exercising other powers under this Schedule; or

                     (b)  performing functions or duties under this Schedule;

that are incidental to the powers mentioned in subclause (1).
