The thresholds for Australian non-Government and Australian government investments are to be adjusted each year.

Under clauses 4 and 7 of Schedule 5 of the Overseas Investment Regulations 2005, the thresholds for Australian non-Government and Australian government investments are to be adjusted each year, if the calculations made in accordance with formulae set out in those clauses produce an amount greater than the previous year’s amount.

The thresholds for the period 1 January 2016 until the close of 31 December 2016 will be:

  • $498 million, if the investor is an Australian non-government investor; and
  • $104 million, if the investor is an Australian government investor.
