Fees

Licensing Fees

The Department charges application fees for licensing, which are payable at the time of any new application, and annual renewal fees to cover ongoing administrative costs. Renewal fees are due by 31 December each year, and relate to the following calendar year. The appropriate fee units are prescribed by the HSE Regulations.

Fees are calculated using the following formula: Prescribed Fee Unit x Current Fee Unit Value = Applicable Fee

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 Department of Treasury and Finance website.

Fee unit calculations are also published in the Tasmanian Government Gazette. The fee unit calculations for 2018-2019 were published in Gazette 21787 - 28 March 2018, pgs 457-458.

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.
