Changes to the thresholds for Australian non-Government and Australian Government investments

5 October 2017

New thresholds have been announced for the period 1 January 2018 until the close of 31 December 2018.

The thresholds for Australian non-Government and Australian government investments are adjusted each year, if the calculations produce an amount greater than the previous year.

The new thresholds for the period 1 January 2018 until the close of 31 December 2018 will be:

  • $516 million, if the investor is an Australian non-government investor; and
  • $108 million, if the investor is an Australian government investor.

These changes are made under clauses 4 and 7 of Schedule 5 of the Overseas Investment Regulations 2005.  This includes the formula to be used in calculating the adjustment
