This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order imposes a levy on grape wine (including the grape wine component of a grape wine product) that is sold by (or on behalf of) a winery in New Zealand.
The levy is payable to New Zealand Winegrowers Incorporated (NZW), which is the industry body for both winegrapes and grape wine that replaces the New Zealand Grape Growers Council Incorporated and the Wine Institute of New Zealand Incorporated. The winery that sells the grape wine (or on whose behalf the wine is sold) is responsible for paying the levy.
The Wine (Grape Wine Levy) Order 2010 is revoked. However, the revocation does not affect obligations that arose before 1 July 2016 to pay the previous levy to the previous industry body (see section 17 of the Interpretation Act 1999).
This order is a confirmable instrument under section 47B of the Legislation Act 2012. It is revoked at the close of 30 June 2017 unless earlier confirmed by an Act of Parliament. That stated time is the applicable deadline under section 47C(1)(a) of that Act. If this order is confirmed, it will, under section 13 of the Commodity Levies Act 1990, be deemed to be revoked 6 years after it is made, unless it is revoked or extended before then.
Date of notification in Gazette: 2 June 2016.
This order is administered by the Ministry for Primary Industries.
