Key dates for Wine Export Charge returns

Reminder for exporters to check their preliminary Statement of Exports to make sure all shipments are correct before they receive the Wine Export Charge (WEC) summary

Two weeks prior to the end of the quarter, all exporters who have shipments in the quarter will receive a preliminary Statement of Exports.

Use this to check your shipment data and make any adjustments before the Wine Export Charge is calculated at the end of the quarter.

If any details are not correct, please update the shipment records in the Wine Australia Licensing and Approval System (WALAS) using the ‘Edit Shipment Details’ function.

Alternatively, please email exports@wineaustralia.com; you must include the following information so that your shipment data can be corrected:

  • Exporter ID
  • Export permit number
  • Exporter reference
  • For packaged wine: Continuing Approval Number, Number of cases, Bottle per case, Bottle volume (750ml), FOB value
  • For bulk wine: Continuing Approval Number, Number of tanks, Tank size (25,000l), Total volume, FOB value.

By completing this review, you will ensure that you receive the correct WEC Summary and prevent any delays in submitting this declaration.
