TRADE IN SERVICES BY COUNTRY

During 2008-09, Australia received $234m in royalty credits for music, film, television programs and video tapes, from trade with other countries. The majority of credits (87% or $204m) were from OECD countries, while 13% ($31m) were from non-OECD countries. Australia received $67m in royalty credits for music, film, television programs and video tapes from New Zealand, $65m from the USA and $34m from the UK.

In the same period, Australia accrued royalty debits worth $1,593m for selected cultural trades, with the vast majority (97%) paid to OECD countries. This can be attributed to a 61% increase in television programs debits. In 2008-09, Australia paid $892m to the USA for music, film, television programs and video tape royalties, which equates to more than half (56%) of all cultural debits.
