SCHEDULE 2Reallocation of quota and calculation of levy liability

Wholesale quota

1.  The Department shall determine the amount, if any, by which the wholesale deliveries of dairy produce to each purchaser exceeds his purchaser quota.

2.  In making that determination the Department shall complete in sequence the steps required by paragraphs 3 to 7, 9 and 10.

3.  The Department shall where necessary authorise an adjustment of the amount, if any, by which the quantity of wholesale deliveries of dairy produce to each purchaser must be adjusted to take account of its fat content, calculated in accordance with Article 4(1) of the Commission Regulation.

4.  The Department shall authorise the adjustment by purchasers (to the extent possible from within the quota available to the purchaser to whom the producer makes deliveries) of the quota of any producer making wholesale deliveries to whom a temporary reallocation of quota has been made, to take account of that reallocation and any purchaser who has insufficient quota unused by producers registered with him to meet that temporary reallocation shall notify the Department of the amount of the shortfall in such form as the Department may reasonably require.

5.  The Department shall determine for each purchaser the amount, if any, by which the purchaser quota of each purchaser exceeds or falls short of the quantity of wholesale deliveries of dairy produce made to him taking into account the amount of quota converted in accordance with regulation 17, and any temporary reallocation made in accordance with regulation 15.

6.  The Department shall determine the total amount, if any, of excess quota remaining for any purchaser whose purchaser quota exceeds the quantity of wholesale deliveries of dairy produce made to him, as determined in accordance with paragraph 5, and shall add that amount to the national reserve.

7.  The Department shall reallocate the amount, if any, referred to in paragraph 6—

(a)in the first instance, to meet any award of a temporary reallocation of quota which has not been met by the adjustment referred to in paragraph 4;

(b)thereafter, to offset the amount by which the deliveries made to any purchaser exceed his purchaser quota, such allocation being made proportionately to the amount of quota; and

(c)where the allocations referred to in sub-paragraph (b) exceed the amount required by the purchaser, the surplus shall be allocated to all purchasers where the deliveries exceed purchaser quota, until all unallocated quota has been exhausted.

8.  Where a purchaser fails to notify the Department on or before 14th May immediately following the end of the quota year of the actual quantity of milk or milk products delivered to him in that year, the Department may decide that that purchaser shall not benefit from the reallocation of quota referred to in paragraph 7(b).

9.  The Department shall determine the total amount of the levy payable by a purchaser by multiplying the amount, if any, by which deliveries to him exceed his purchaser quota following the steps specified in paragraphs 3 to 7 by the rate of levy calculated in accordance with Article 1 of the Council Regulation.

10.  Where, for any quota year, a purchaser is unable to supply such proof of the quantities of dairy produce delivered to him that year as the Department may reasonably require, the Department shall make its own determination of those quantities, based on all the information available to it, for the purposes of calculating any levy payable by that purchaser, and shall inform the purchaser of such determination.

11.  Where a purchaser—

(a)has not been approved pursuant to regulation 25; or

(b)has had his approval withdrawn by the Department pursuant to Article 13(3) of the Commission Regulation,

the Department may require any levy payable by that purchaser to be paid in such proportion as it may reasonably require by any producer whose wholesale deliveries to that purchaser have given rise to the liability for levy.

Direct sales quota

12.  The Department shall determine for each direct seller the amount, if any, after taking into account the amount of quota converted in accordance with regulation 17, by which his direct sales quota exceeds the quantity of dairy produce sold by direct sale by him, and shall add this to any quantities available in the national reserve.

13.  The Department shall make an award of a temporary reallocation of direct sales quota, under the terms of regulation 15 from the aggregate of amounts, if any, referred to in paragraph 12.

14.  The Department shall determine the aggregate amount, if any, by which the direct sales quota of all direct sellers falls short of the total quantity of dairy produce sold by direct sales by them, after taking into account the amount of quota converted in accordance with regulation 17, and any temporary reallocation made in accordance with paragraph 13.

15.  The Department shall determine for each direct seller the amount, if any, by which his direct sales quota falls short of the quantity of dairy produce sold by direct sale by him, taking into account the amount of quota converted in accordance with regulation 17, and any temporary reallocation of quota made in accordance with paragraph 13.

16.  The Department shall determine the aggregate of the amounts, if any, referred to in paragraph 15.

17.  The Department shall determine the total amount of the levy payable by multiplying the amount, if any, referred to in paragraph 14 by the rate of levy calculated in accordance with Article 1 of the Council Regulation.

18.  The Department shall calculate the rate of levy per litre, if any, to be paid by each direct seller on the amount, if any, at paragraph 15 by dividing the amount calculated in accordance with paragraph 17 by the aggregate referred to in paragraph 16.

19.  Where a direct seller fails to notify the Department on or before 14th May immediately following the end of the quota year of the total quantity of milk products sold by him by direct sales in that year, the Department may require that the rate of levy per litre to be paid by that direct seller on the quantity not notified shall be the rate calculated in accordance with Article 1 of the Council Regulation.

20.  Where for any quota year a direct seller is unable to supply such proof as the Department may reasonably require of the quantities of dairy produce sold by him in that year, the Department shall make its own determination of those quantities, based on all the information available to it, for the purposes of calculating any levy payable by that direct seller, and shall inform the direct seller of its determination.
