Forestry and the Emissions Trading Scheme

Baker Tilly Staples Rodway has a number of senior staff with significant experience and expertise as accountants in the forestry and the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) sector which covers all accounting disciplines including accounting, taxation, audit and business advisory.

ETS has been with us for a number of years now with full obligations arising for the forestry sector from 1 January 2008. The changing landscape of the ETS will provide the right incentives for forestry over the long term to help take action on climate change and support the transition to a low emissions sustainable future. Forestry is the key sector where benefit can be obtained from the ETS to generate value and wealth.

  • Register your post-1989 forest land in the ETS
  • Prepare mandatory and voluntary emissions returns
