The PTG has held consultation sessions in Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney in recent weeks and has received a large number of written submissions on the technical design issues associated with implementation of the Minerals Resource Rent Tax (MRRT) and the extended Petroleum Resource Rent Tax.
With the information gathered, the PTG is now considering the submissions and consultations before providing a final report to the Federal Treasurer by the end of the year.
There is no doubt that these discussions and consultations with the whole industry should have occurred much earlier in the peace, before the Resources Super Profits Tax (RSPT) and the subsequent MRRT were placed into the public arena.
