Public forum on AER review of the rate of return guideline

We have commenced a process to review our rate of return guideline, and contributions from stakeholders are a central part of our process.

We recognise that the decisions we make and the actions we take in performing our regulatory roles and other activities affect a wide range of individuals, businesses and organisations. Our vision is for our stakeholders to have the opportunity to engage with us across a range of our functions.

To that end, we are holding a public forum on our upcoming issues paper and the key issues to be investigated during our review of the rate of return guideline.

Our rate of return guideline sets out the approach by which we will estimate the rate of return. It comprises the return on debt and the return on equity, as well as the value of imputation credits.

The forum agenda will be available on the AER website prior to the public forum.

If you are interested in attending the public forum, please notify us by emailing RateOfReturn@aer.gov.au before close of business on 11 September 2017.
