Guardianship and Administration

Appoint a guardian or administrator to help manage the personal, legal of financial affairs of an adult with a disability.

Account by Administrator (ABA) 

Administrators must complete and lodge an online account by administrator (ABA) every year unless VCAT has ordered otherwise. Lodging an ABA is a mandatory legal requirement to ensure that the represented person’s finances are being managed appropriately. Lodge your application, access and continue an existing application, upload supporting documents and find out how to pay ABA fees on our Account by Administrator page

Paying ABA fees at Australia Post offices

Due to a technical error, the barcode on ABA fee letters that we recently sent to administrators is incorrect. 

When the barcode on letters is scanned to be paid at an Australia Post office, the fee appears as $12,545.00.

Only over-the-counter payments at Australia Post offices are affected. You are not affected if paying by Billpay or Securepay.

If you are paying at Australia Post, you can still make the correct payment of $125.45 regardless of what price the barcode scans. Australia Post have been notified of the issue.

If you have any further queries, please contact the VCAT Human Rights Division on 03 9628 9911.
