Fees and fines

​We charge fees and fines in accordance with all Victorian Government departments. This includes:

  • fees for services and regulatory purposes, including licensing and registering certain activities
  • fines for improper conduct, and to dis​​courage unlawful behaviour.

Fees and fines are officially set and revised by their relevant legislation.

The Victorian Government has a policy of automatically indexing certain fees and fines each year for inflation, so that the value of those fees and fines is maintained.
