Agricultural land investments

September 2018 update

25 Sep 2018
Description

Proposed investments in agricultural land by foreign persons (excluding foreign government investors) generally require approval where the cumulative value of a foreign person’s agricultural land holdings exceeds $15 million, with exceptions applying to investors from Australia’s trade agreement partners (as specified below). All acquisitions of agricultural land by foreign government investors require approval.

All acquisitions of interests in agricultural land by foreign persons regardless of whether they require approval and regardless of value must be notified to the Australian Taxation Office Register of Foreign Ownership.

This Guidance Note provides information for foreign investors proposing to invest in Australian agricultural land, including when an acquisition of agricultural land is a notifiable action, approval processes and compliance.
