Register of foreign ownership of water entitlements - Report of registrations as at 30 June 2020

The Register of Foreign Ownership of Water Entitlements (Water Register) was established to provide greater transparency about the level of foreign ownership of Australia’s water entitlements.

The Commissioner of Taxation reports annually to the Treasurer on the operation of the Register of Foreign Ownership of Water or Agricultural Land Act 2015 (the Act) and is required to publish aggregate statistics of foreign ownership each year.

This is the third report of the Water Register (Water Report 2020) and includes water entitlement registrations received from foreign persons between 1 July 2017 and 31 July 2020 for water entitlements held to 30 June 2020.
