* The current value of a fee unit is governed by the Fee Units Act 1997, and is updated by the Tasmanian Department of Treasury and Finance for each financial year. The current value is available on the Tasmanian Treasury website.

For the 2014-2015 financial year the value of a fee unit is $1.48.

For new applications, please ensure you calculate the appropriate fee using the number of fee units that applies to your application, and the most current fee unit value.

Please note that if you do not pay the annual licence fee applicable to your facility by the due date, the Secretary may cancel your licence under s30 of the HSE Act.
