What happens when completed?
The legislation provides that:
if the duty is less than the interim duty, the excess is to be refunded;
if the duty is more than the interim duty, the interim duty is treated as duty and the balance waived;
if the importer fails, within the time limits available, to seek an assessment of duty, the interim duty paid on the goods is taken to be duty actually payable.
An applicant will be formally notified of the Anti-Dumping Commission's proposed recommendation to the Minister (or delegate). The recommendation may be that the Minister decide to grant a full repayment, partial repayment or no repayment. Reasons will be provided where the amount recommended for repayment is less than the amount sought by the applicant. The Commission will also advise where no refund is to be recommended.
The outcome, together with the name of the importer, will be published online in the monthly status report. Status reports are published monthly as Anti-Dumping Notices.
An applicant has the right, within 30 days of receipt of the notification, to apply to the Anti-Dumping Review Panel for a review of the Commmission's recommendation if the amount recommended for repayment is less than the amount sought by the applicant or if no refund is to be recommended.
The Commisison will not make a formal recommendation to the Minister until after expiry of the 30-day appeal period. If a review is undertaken by the Reiew Panel, resulting in the Commission's recommendation being revoked, the Commission will make a final recommendation to the Minister.
Where a payment is to be made, the Commission will seek bank account details to process an electronic transfer of funds.
