TAXES LESS SUBSIDIES ON PRODUCTS

Definition and scope

Taxes on products are levied by both the States and the Commonwealth. Taxes on products include taxes on the provision of goods and services (e.g. sales tax and GST), excises, taxes on international trade, taxes on gambling, taxes on insurance, etc.


Subsidies on products are paid by governments to the producer for the production of a particular product.



Summary of GSP(P) sources and methods

Commonwealth taxes have been allocated to states using HFCE, imports or GVA depending on the type of tax. This allocation of Commonwealth taxes is then combined with the State taxes to produce a total Taxes on products for each state.


Volume estimates of Taxes on products are produced using quantity revaluation. The indicators used for quantity revaluation depend on each individual tax. For example, Sales tax is based around the taxation revenue collected and total wholesale sale volumes. Taxes on crude oil is based on the taxation revenue collected and the quantity of petroleum produced.


Subsidies on products are only a small proportion of Taxes less subsidies on products. State subsidies have been combined with a state share of Commonwealth subsidies which have been allocated to states based on Taxes less subsidies on production and imports shares.


The output indicator (i.e. Total taxes less subsidies on production) is calculated as the difference between total Taxes on products and total Subsidies on products for each state. The state output indicators are used to derive volume measures of Taxes less subsidies on products. The state volume Taxes less subsidies on products estimates are benchmarked to the annual national industry volume Taxes less subsidies on products estimates.
