Regulation respecting the annual duty payable to the Green Fund
RÉGIE DE l’ÉNERGIE — DUTY PAYABLE TO THE GREEN FUND
Act respecting the Régie de l’énergie
(chapter R-6.01, ss. 85.36 and 114)
The annual duty payable to the Green Fund by a distributor under Chapter VI.3 of the Act respecting the Régie de l’énergie (chapter R-6.01) is the amount obtained by multiplying the applicable rate by the quantity of carbon dioxide (CO
) emissions that is attributable to the distributor.
O.C. 1049-2007, s. 1
The applicable rate, in dollars per tonne of CO
emissions, is determined each year by dividing the annual financial investment in the Green Fund by the total quantity of CO
emissions as determined under section 4.
O.C. 1049-2007, s. 2
The annual financial investment in the Green Fund is obtained by dividing the overall financial investment set by the Government under section 85.35 of the Act by the number of 12-month periods within the period determined by the Government.
O.C. 1049-2007, s. 3
The quantity of CO
emissions attributable to a distributor is the product obtained by multiplying the CO
emission coefficients listed in the Schedule by the respective volumes of natural gas, gasoline, diesel fuel, light heating oil, heavy heating oil and propane or by the respective masses of petroleum coke and various varieties of coal that are attributable to the distributor.
The total quantity of CO
emissions is the sum of the CO
emissions calculated under the first paragraph for all the distributors.
O.C. 1049-2007, s. 4
The fuel sold in Québec is presumed to be intended for consumption in Québec unless shown otherwise by the distributor.
In determining the volumes or masses used to determine the quantity of CO
emissions attributable to a distributor, the Régie also takes into account in particular the statements filed by the distributors pursuant to section 85.37 of the Act.
O.C. 1049-2007, s. 5
Any variation the Régie establishes in the volume attributable to a distributor after the annual determination of the applicable rate will be the subject of a notice of payment indicating the amount of the annual duty payable to the Green Fund by the distributor pursuant to section 1. The notice of payment is sent at the latest with the notice of payment for the subsequent period.
O.C. 1049-2007, s. 6
The annual duty payable by a distributor is payable in 4 equal instalments on 31 December, 31 March, 30 June and 30 September.
O.C. 1049-2007, s. 7
Any balance unpaid on the due date bears interest at the rate determined as provided in section 28 of the Tax Administration Act (chapter A-6.002). The interest is capitalized monthly.
In addition to the interest payable, a penalty of 15% is added to any amount owing if the delay exceeds 60 days. In no case may the amount of the penalty exceed 15% of the amount owing.
O.C. 1049-2007, s. 8
