Insert:
 
5A.   Rate of levy – 30 April 2014 levy day
(1)      Despite rule 5, for item 1 of the table in subsection 7(1) of the Act, the rate of the national joint replacement register levy, imposed on a sponsor on the national joint replacement register levy day of 30 April 2014 in respect of each joint replacement prosthesis sponsored by that sponsor as at the most recent census day, is:
(a)     for a hand articulation prosthesis or a foot articulation prosthesis –  
        zero; and
          (b)   for any other joint replacement prosthesis – subject to subrule (2),
        the rate in dollars calculated using the formula:
 

1,312,000

n

            where:
         n is equal to the total number of joint replacement prostheses sponsored by all sponsors as at the most recent census day, less the total number of hand articulation prostheses and foot articulation prostheses sponsored by sponsors on that same day.
(2)        If the application of the formula in paragraph (1)(b) would result in the total amount of the national joint replacement register levy imposed on a sponsor in respect of the same joint replacement prosthesis in the same financial year exceeding $5,000, then the rate in dollars of the national joint replacement register levy imposed on that sponsor in respect of that joint replacement prosthesis is $5,000 less any amount of the national joint replacement register levy that has already been imposed on that sponsor in respect of that joint replacement prosthesis for national joint replacement register levy days in that financial year.
