Deductions for mining royalty
Where royalty is calculated as a percentage of a mineral's value, some expenses can be deducted from the gross value.
Deductions must be claimed on a GST-exclusive basis.

|Late dispatch costs (coal only)||Cost relating to the late dispatch of coal from a port|
|Ocean freight and insurance||Freight or insurance costs relating to the transport, by water, of the mineral (or oil processed from the oil shale) to a port outside Queensland|
|Loss of metal content (certain minerals only)||The amount that we decide should be subtracted from the gross value to allow for the loss of metal content in the processing of the mineral|
|Other approved deductions||The amount of any cost that we decide is a type of cost that should be subtracted from the gross value|
