Important information for ASX Listed Entities

Listing Fees - Amended Guidance Note - Calculation Date & Due Date

ASX Guidance Note 15 - Schedule of Fees has been amended and is available on ASX Online and The Guidance Note incorporates changes to reflect increases to Initial, Annual and Subsequent Listing Fees, which have been phased in over the last three years. 

Listed companies should note the following:
  • the calculation date for determining the annual fee payable is 31 May. For those entities whose securities are suspended as at this date, ASX will normally use the last price at which the securities traded before suspension.
  • the due date for payment is Friday 30 July 2004, by no later than 5.00 pm EST. This year 31 July is a Saturday, and therefore the preceding business day becomes the effective due date (listing rule 19.5).

Any queries in relation to the amount or calculation of annual listing fees should be directed to your Companies Adviser or Paul Phenix at, (61-3) 9617 8646.

ASX Online - Professional Advisers

Listed Companies should be aware that ASX Online has been expanded to provide a new service to lawyers and accountants that enables them to electronically lodge a range of ASIC forms and certain other information, including substantial shareholder notices for release to the market. These forms previously had to be lodged with ASX by facsimile and were subject to a fee. A number of selected ASIC forms are now available on ASX Online websites in Microsoft Word.

ASX Online for Professional Advisers does not permit lodgement of company announcements required under the Listing Rules. This is still the responsibility of listed companies. Should information involving your company be electronically lodged with ASX for release to the market by a Professional Adviser, an acknowledgement of release will be automatically sent to you.

For further information, please contact your Companies Adviser.

To help keep our Listed Entities informed of information and events ASX will be sending emails to the Company Secretary's Office from time to time. You are receiving this email because you have been identified as a key contact within the Company Secretary's Office at your organisation. If you would like to update your email address please do so via the Directors/Senior Management page on ASX Online for Companies. Feel free to forward this email to any relevant parties within your organisation.
