Fees are charged for licence applications, and a range of other activities relating to the licensing system.
Any application submitted must be accompanied by the correct fee. Failure to submit the correct fee will result in the application being returned. Once an application has been registered, the application fee is non-refundable regardless of the outcome of your application.
On 1 July each year, government fees and fines associated with non-compliance are increased automatically under the Monetary Units Act 2004. The increase to application fees and fines for non-compliance with gambling laws occurs immediately.
The following table outlines the application fees from 1 July 2020.
The annual rate for fees from 1 July 2020 remains unchanged from 2019-20 and is available on the Department of Treasury and Finance website, see: Department of Treasury and Finance
Note: The above fees do not apply when the associate application is being lodged with an application for a new gambling industry participant licence. They also do not apply when lodged with an application for renewing a bingo centre operator, registered bookmaker, commercial raffle organiser or venue operator licence.
Our fee fact sheets are based on the Department of Justice & Community Safety list of automatically indexed fees and fines
