Lodging royalty returns

As a resource authority holder, you may need to lodge royalty returns periodically, even if you do not need to pay royalty. Understanding what type of return you have to submit and when you need to do this will help you meet your obligations and avoid penalties.

You may need to lodge royalty returns quarterly or annually, depending on the authorities in the operation and the size of the operation.

When you know when you need to lodge, you can do this using OSR Online.

This guide explains what operations you need to lodge a return for, the types of return and their requirements, how to lodge and assessments.
