All timber delivered to a destination other than an FML and/or an EDT Mill must be reported and paid for by the Cutting Right holder (Quota holders or Timber Sale holders)
All timber that meets the above definition must be reported on the monthly timber return. The return only needs to be completed for months when Crown timber is moved or delivered. The return must be submitted by the end of the month following the month in which the timber was moved.
A year end (March) timber return is required from all cutting right holders. If no wood has been moved or delivered in March a "nil" timber return is to be submitted. "On hand" wood must be declared by volume and species in the comments section of the March timber return.
