Extractive Sector: Payments to Governments Report 2020



Introduction

Background

The United Kingdom ("UK") Reports on Payments to Governments Regulations 2014 (UK Regulations), as amended in December 2015, require UK companies in the extractive sector to publicly disclose payments made to governments in the countries where they undertake extractive operations. The UK Regulations enact domestic rules in line with Directive 2013/34/EU and apply to large UK incorporated companies that are involved in the exploration, prospection, discovery, development and extraction of minerals, oil, natural gas deposits, or other materials. The aim of Directive 2013/34/EU and the UK Regulations is to enhance transparency in the extractive sector by imposing reporting requirements relating to payments to governments.

The UK's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules extend the disclosure requirements to companies that have securities listed on a UK regulated market, including Jardine Matheson Holdings Limited (in which PT United Tractors Tbk and its subsidiaries, direct and indirect subsidiaries of PT Astra International Tbk (hereinafter referred as "Astra"), are its subsidiaries).

Government

Project


Payment types are required to be reported by project. A project is defined as the operational activities that are governed by a single contract, license, lease, concession or similar legal arrangements and form the basis for payment liabilities with a government. If multiple and such agreements are 'substantially interconnected', they are to be treated as a single project. 'Substantially interconnected' means forming a set of operationally and geographically integrated contracts, licenses, leases or concessions or related agreements with substantially similar terms that are signed with a government, giving rise to payment liabilities.
