EnergyAustralia supplies energy to nearly two million customers across Australia, the majority families and small businesses. We provide an essential service, which means we occupy a privileged position in the community. The payment of taxes and royalties to federal and state governments is just one of the ways we contribute to people’s lives, but it’s an important one.
We also know it’s important for people to have confidence their companies are doing the right thing. That’s why EnergyAustralia was the first energy utility in Australia to register for the Australian government’s new tax transparency code, aimed at encouraging large and medium-sized businesses to disclose their tax affairs.
We are pleased to provide our tax contribution reports. This report discloses the tax payments we made during each financial year and includes information about our approach to tax and an explanation of why we paid the tax we did.
