WET rebate webinars help industry make sense of legislation changes

After overwhelming demand for Wine Equalisation Tax (WET) Rebate Seminars in capital cities and major wine regions, the Winemakers’ Federation of Australia has organised a free webinar for industry to go over changes to the legislation.

WFA and Wine Communicators of Australia will deliver the webinar on Wednesday, December 13, at 12.30pm (ACDT). Registrations are now open.

Around 1200 people attended the seminar series in November – some sessions booked out.

Guest speakers from the Australian Tax Office will again join the WFA team and present the Wine Equalisation Tax - New Measures in next week’s webinar which will be informative for those unable to attend the recent series or who need a refresher.

The WET changes were agreed by the Australian Parliament on  August 17, 2017, and are now law, known as the Treasury Laws Amendment (2017 Measure No.4) Act 2017.

“Winemakers who currently access the rebate, or sell grapes to a wine producer who receives the rebate, need to understand the implications of the changes,” WFA chief executive Tony Battaglene said.

“We have the experts in the field from the ATO at the webinar to help winemakers and grape growers understand the changes within the new legislation.

“The ATO has demonstrated its commitment to helping ensure our industry is best placed to transition into operating under the new legislation.”
