Indexation of fees and penalties

Overview

Victorian Government departments and agencies charge 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, see the fact sheet under related publications.

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 make the lists as accurate and complete as possible, updates and revisions may be necessary. To view the lists follow the relevant links below.

Premier and Cabinet, Treasury and Finance and State Development, Business and Innovation are not responsible for any relevant fees or fines and therefore have no list to publish.
