Status of the 2012-13 Port Licence Fee Recovery (as at 31 March 2013)
The Port Licence Fee (PLF) became a legislative requirement for PoMC with the passage of the Port Management Amendment (Port of Melbourne Corporation Licence Fee) Act 2012 (Vic) which requires PoMC to remit an annual amount to the Victorian Government at a starting rate of $75 million.
As part of the PLF implementation process, PoMC advised industry that it would provide a status report on the PLF recoveries at the end of the third quarter.
