New levy rates will apply to the Synthetic Greenhouse Gas (Goods) Levy on 1 January 2018.
New levy rates and additional goods will apply to the Synthetic Greenhoouse Gas (Goods) levy on 1 January 2018. The Climate Change (Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Levies) Amendment Regulations 2017 (Schedule 2) provide the levy rate changes and expands the levy to some new goods and gases.
