Fees effective 1 July 2020
Unlike in previous years, fees for VCAT services will not increase on 1 July 2020.
The government usually adjusts certain fees and fines each year for inflation, including VCAT application and hearing fees. In response to the economic impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Victorian Government has placed a freeze on fees and fines for 2020-21 and will maintain the 2019-20 values of fee and penalty units for this period. This decision has been made to support Victorians through the coronavirus pandemic and reduce the financial stress on households and businesses.
From 1 July 2020, VCAT has the power to re-open an order for enforcement reasons. The fees for making such an application depend on the type of VCAT case.
