Content Calculations for Found Objects:

FOUND OBJECTS are items removed directly from the Australian environment for use either singularly or in conjunction with other items both Australian and or Foreign sourced. Usually no direct value can be prescribed to such items.

The calculation criteria for such items is as follows.

1: Where a Wholesale value Exc GST can be prescribed to each item prior to manufacture/assembly/completion.
The Australian content shall be the wholesale value of those items of Australian Origin expressed as a percentage of the total wholesale value of the items.

EXAMPLE: An Australian timber golf Club head finished for assembly is $50. Australian timber Golf Shaft ready to assemble $35.
And Foreign Leather and Linen for final application to shaft $15. Australian Content total Wholesale value $85. Expressed as a percentage of Total Whole sale value of $100 = 85%. Your score for Australian Content would be 85%.

Where no wholesale value can be calculated with any certainty THEN-

2: By Weight:
The total weight of Australian sourced -Found Objects- expressed as a percentage of the total weight forming the whole item.

EXAMPLE: A Golf Club head weighs, 500 Grams. The Shaft weighs 350 Grams and the foreign leather and linen weighs a total of 150 Grams.
Total weight of Australian Origin items 850 Grams expressed as percentage of total item weight of 1000 Grams = 85%. Your score for Australian Content would be 85%.
