Mineral Resource Rent Tax - Levy on Australia?s Coal and Iron Ore Resources

Summary

Mineral Resource Rent Tax (MRRT) is an economic rent payable by the mining companies for the extraction of coal and iron ore and charged on the extracted volume before it undergoes any processing or value addition. The Australia's Future Tax System (AFTS) Review in December 2009 proposed a uniform resource rent tax aimed at taxing above normal profits made by the miners and to smooth out the inappropriate and inflexible royalty rates applicable in different states of Australia which is being currently charged under Resource Super Profit Tax (RSPT).
