2019-20 Fees and Charges
The Government recently approved a 2.05% increase to most TGA fees and charges for 2019-20. The revised Schedule of Fees and Charges were published on the TGA website in May 2019. The new fees and charges schedule will take effect from 1 July 2019.
To avoid incurring an annual charge for the next financial year, we must receive cancellation requests by 5:00pm, 30 June 2019 if you wish to cancel any ARTG entries for your organisation. If we don't receive your request by the deadline, the entry/entries will be active on the ARTG on 1 July 2019 and will therefore incur annual charge(s) for financial year 2019-20.
Annual Charge Exemption (ACE)
Between 1 July and 22 July annually, Sponsors are required to make a declaration of $0 turnover to confirm (retrospectively) that an ACE entry has not commenced generating turnover during the previous financial year. If the TGA does not receive a $0 turnover declaration it is assumed that the entry has commenced generating turnover in the previous financial year and result in the ACE ceasing on the entry. If the sponsor fails to make a declaration between 1 July and 22 July of a year and the ACE entry did not commence generating turnover in the previous financial year, the sponsor can apply to have the exemption reinstated between 23 July and 15 September each year.
Annual charges apply to all product entries (except export only products and ACE) on the ARTG at any time during a financial year, regardless of whether the product is subsequently cancelled within the same financial year.
