Submit an application for Annual Return Exporter, Financial Year 2019-20

Wine Australia and the Department of Agriculture have opened applications for the quarterly return exemption.

The changes to the Wine Export Charge mean:

  • exporters who pay Wine Export Charges of up to $1000 a year can submit annual returns rather than quarterly returns. (Previously the threshold for annual returns was $200 a year).
  • exporters who haven’t shipped during a specific return period do not need to submit a return. (Previously, you were required to submit a nil return).

What you need to do

If you expect your Wine Export Charge costs will be less than $1000 in 2019–20, you can apply for an exemption from submitting quarterly returns by filling out the form below.

If your Wine Export Charge for 2018–19 was less than $1000, we encourage you to apply for this exemption. If you had an quarterly return exemption for the 2018-19 year and your total Wine Export Levy payable was under $1000, Wine Australia has automatically re-applied on your behalf.

If you receive an exemption, you will only have to submit one return at the end of the 2019-20 financial year, but we will still send you a quarterly statement of exports for review.
