Australian Mining Industry Annual Lecture 2017

Wednesday, 7 June 2017. Arthur Streeton Auditorium, Sofitel on Collins, Melbourne.

The lecture, sponsored by BHP Billiton, was established in 2015 as an initiative of the MCA to promote the role and contribution of the minerals industry in Australia.  The inaugural lecture was delivered by the distinguished historian Professor Geoffrey Blainey AC on the topic ‘Mining and the Australian People – the long view’.

The event highlights the industry’s leading role in indigenous economic environment as the nation commemorates the 25th anniversary (3/6/1992) of the Mabo decision and the 50th anniversary of the indigenous right to vote in the 1967 referendum (27/5/67).  It positions the MCA in the public policy sphere. It is a good news story that showcases how the mining industry has responsible procurement, addresses indigenous issues and mining best practices.

MCA Submission to Treasury on Diverted Profits Tax Consultation Paper

The MCA supports strong, balanced tax laws to preserve the integrity of the tax system. The MCA’s submission to Treasury‘s consultation paper ‘Implementing a Diverted Profits Tax’ (DPT) notes that Australia has strict tax integrity rules and the proposed DPT is a unilateral measure that departures from multilateral efforts through the OECD’s Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project.

The MCA recommends that the DPT be more clearly targeted at artificial tax arrangements and instances of uncooperative behavior with the ATO by taxpayers through a tighter ‘gateway’ for transactions that come within scope of the DPT.
