Woodside paid A$454 million in Australian corporate tax for 2019-20

Woodside’s Australian corporate income tax is paid by three entities: our 90%-owned Burrup Facilities Company Pty Ltd and Burrup Train 1 Pty Ltd, which reflect the joint ventures we operate; and Woodside Petroleum Ltd. The data reported in the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) 2019-20 Report of entity tax information shows that in respect of the financial year ended 30 June 2020, the three Woodside corporate entities had combined taxable income of A$3.1 billion and income tax payable of A$454 million.

In addition to the ATO data, Woodside reports its Australian tax contributions for the previous calendar year on a cash paid basis.
In 2020, Woodside paid A$473 million in Australian corporate income tax and a further A$234 million in other taxes and royalties (see attached Fact Sheet). Woodside has paid more than A$10 billion in Australian taxes and royalties since 2011.

Woodside CEO Meg O’Neill said the company had made a significant contribution over many years.
“Woodside does the right thing when it comes to paying our taxes in Australia. “As one of the country’s largest taxpayers, Woodside is subject to the ATO’s Justified Trust program and has achieved the highest assurance rating, attained by just under half of the top 100 taxpayers. The rating means that the ATO is assured that Woodside is paying the right amount of income tax.“We value the trust of our employees, contractors, suppliers and customers, and we know that transparency and accountability are core to maintaining that trust,” she said.
