Royalty Recovery

Royalty Recovery

KPMG in Canada’s Royalty Recovery practice can help provide analysis of your obligations and contracts to address overpaid royalty fees.

KPMG’s Royalty Recovery practice helps Canada’s businesses manage overpaid royalty fees.

Are you overpaying your royalties?

Royalty overpayments are common. They may form a large part of an organization's costs – costs that come straight off the bottom line. In many cases, an organization can recover overpaid royalties from several years prior. During this time, royalty management processes and systems can generally be improved to help reduce the risk of future Canadian royalty overpayments.

Royalty reviews

KPMG's Royalty Recovery practice can provide a thorough review of both your Crown and non-Crown royalty obligations (freehold, overriding, and any other royalty arrangements). They can review royalty regulations and your leases, contracts, royalty fees and royalty payments to obtain refunds for any overpayments. 

This all-inclusive analysis allows our team to help identify ways to improve your processes and systems and better manage your future royalty obligations with minimal disruption to your daily business activities.

We can provide:

  • A review of your oil and gas, oils and mining royalties, including:
    • Alberta and BC Gas Cost Allowance (GCA) review to help ensure all capital, operating and custom processing fees are claimed
    • Review of applicable Canadian royalty incentives (i.e. Alberta Natural Gas Deep Drilling Program and Alberta C*)
    • Review of non-Crown royalties
  • Recommendations for corrective action to reduce future overpaid royalty payments,
  • Disclosure of liabilities or compliance issues identification, and
  • Employee training.
