___________________________________________________________________________

On 1 July 2012 a carbon price will be imposed on liable entities under the Clean Energy Act 2011 (Cth). It will be a fixed price before moving on 1 July 2015 to a floating price. Liable entities are entitled, subject to certain rules, to offset their liabilities by relying on international and domestic offsets. In this Master Class, experts will take you step-by-step through the provisions of the carbon price mechanism, the taxation implications, the offsetting mechanisms and the carbon derivatives market.

Numbers for this class are limited so that the learning experience can be enhanced. The Master Class is suitable for liable entities, lawyers in private practice, in-house counsel, academics and other interested parties.
