Indexation of fees and penalties
Victorian Government departments and agencies charge a range of:
- fees for services and regulatory purposes, including licensing and registering certain activities; and
- fines for improper conduct, and to discourage unlawful behaviour.
Fees and fines are officially set and revised by legislation relevant to their application.
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.
For further explanation of the policy of automatically indexing certain fees and fines, you can download the attached Department of Treasury and Finance fact sheets.

Automatically indexed fees and fines
Lists of the automatically indexed fees and fines which contribute to the Victorian Government's public account can be found on departmental websites.
Although all departments have sought to make the lists as accurate and complete as possible, updates and revisions may be necessary.
To view the lists please follow the relevant links below.
The Department of Premier and Cabinet, the Department of Treasury and Finance and the Department of Business and Innovation are not responsible for any relevant fees or fines and therefore have no list to publish.
