What to do before to ensure you receive your full voting entitlement

Voting entitlements are calculated using the Levy Payer Register data (which records all transactions that have occurred during the preceding financial year) that MLA receives from the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry. To do this, we need your ABN as declared on your levy return form, so we can correctly match the levies you have paid on the Levy Payer Register to your MLA membership. (If you don’t have an ABN, please ensure your contact information is updated to be consistent with your levy return form).
