VCAT has new fees from 1 July 2016

Posted on 17 Jun 2016

VCAT’s fees are set by the Victorian Government, which has announced our new fee structure.

From 1 July, VCAT fees will be charged according to three levels: corporate, standard and concession.

  • The corporate fee applies to larger businesses, companies, corporations and government agencies with a turnover of more than $200,000 in the previous financial year.
  • The standard fee is payable by individuals (including those who run small businesses as sole traders or in partnerships), not-for-profit organisations and incorporated businesses with a turnover of less than $200,000 in the previous financial year.
  • The concession fee is capped at $150 and is available automatically to holders of a Commonwealth Health Care Card.

Fee relief is available for all VCAT fees, including waivers and reductions, based on eligibility criteria.

The new fees are the result of a Regulatory Impact Statement process run by the Department of Justice and Regulation, as VCAT’s current fee regulations were due to expire on 30 June 2016.
